Prepopulate fields on a new Record

I want to populate fields on the newly created Opportunity record when a Lead is converted. This can easily be done with field mapping on the Lead object if both the Lead and Opportunity fields are custom fields, but I want to map a custom Lead field to the standard "Amount" field on the Opportunity. Yes, I could recreate a new custom "Amount" field, but that's not the best way.

No matter how I try and create my button logic, it's not taking the fields off the Lead object and populating the standard fields on the new Opportunity. Am I trying to do something not supported by Salesforce, as in prepopulating fields on a 'new' record that is being created by Lead Conversion?

Well, I know the guy that created this. Thanks for the tip. But I'm still looking for confirmation that salesforce does not support prepopulating records on a newly created record natively.
