Can someone give me the best route to go to achieve the following process?  I have ArcGIS 10 and Spatial Analyst.

I have polygons that represent large acreage ranch boundaries in an area with moderate to heavy rolling terrain.  I want to streamline a process in which I can see how many acres within the boundary of the property have slopes greater than 8 degrees and how many acres within the boundary are lower than 8 degrees.  This is where I'm at so far but I'm at a road block.

1. Obtain DEM
2. Reproject to feet xy units
3. Convert z from meters to feet
4. Run slope analysis

I'm not sure where to go from hear to quickly get what I want.  Thanks.
