nvarchar to smalldatetime

Please help.
I have a ms sql table called data. Two fields,
saledate(smalldatetime),saledatetext(nvarchar)

I have dates (ex. 05/04/05) in the saledatetext, but I need this
converted into smalldatetime format and placed in the saledate column.

Can you tell me how to do this using sql query analyzer?

UPDATE data
SET saledate = CAST(saledatetext AS SMALLDATETIME)
