1) Take song you want to learn.
2) Transpose some notes onto the low B so you can play in less hand positions (e.g. play the F on the low B instead of on the E)
3) Repeat ad nauseum and realise that a 5 string is about economy of motion, not the lower notes (and that having the low B is not always a substitute for drop or down tuning).

Mann Gegen Mann - Rammstein.

Also, just move the notes on to the B string. Example:

Open E string, make it 5th Fret on B String.
