I just purchased a samsung plasma hp4254 tv. Everything works great on it. The only thing I wonder about is for what type of dvd player to use with it. I have a regular dvd player right now, is it worth it to get an upconverting dvd player for this unit? Does this tv already do the upconverting for the regular dvd player?

If you currently own a DVD player that incorporates progressive scan you will probably have no reason to invest in an upscale player, The 4254 is upscales 480P to 720P very well. I doubt you will notice much of an improvement from a good progressive player to an upscaling unit. An old non-progressive scan player may not perform very well. Moving up to HD-DVD will offer significant improvement in playback of SD type DVDs.
