System.Web.UI.WebControls.Calendar cal = new System.Web.UI.WebControls.Calendar();
cal.SelectedDate = DateTime.Now;

And to parse a DateTime string:

string myDateAsString = "1/1/2004";
DateTime aDate = DateTime.Parse(myDateAsString);

Yes.  DateTime.Now simply returns a DateTime object initialized with the current date and time.
