If you sucsessfully installed recovery-0.99.2b, you should have nandroid. So, instead of following the instructions you just posted, skip them and follow the next set of instructions in that page that talk about using nandroid for installing via nandroid restore. I will confuse you even more if I try to explain how to install ADB lol. I can do it but, just warning you ;)

Then just follow these steps:
1. make sure you have flash_image installed like this /system/xbin/flash_image
(if you don't know how to do that, the easiest way is to download DroidRootHelper
from the market. All of this up to number two can be done right within DroidRootHelper.
Choose top 'Mount System' button, next 'Install and chmod busybox', next 'Install and chmod flash_image', next 'Unmount System', next 'sync', and lastly 'Reboot recovery)
2. reboot to recovery mode
3. make sure phone is plugged into computer (no mount)
4. use your sdk tools (e.g. C:\android-sdk-windows\tools )
(if you don't have that ready, then you must do that before continuing the rest of this process)
5. type 'adb shell' without the qoutes
6. type 'flash_image boot /sdcard/evilboot9.img' without quotes
7. reboot phone
8. go to SetCPU program and click menu
9. click on the bottom "autodetect"
10. adjust to 800Mhz
11. Enjoy !!
Hope I helped... I chose evilboot8.img and it runs fast enough for me. Let me know later how 9 works for you please. Good luck!
Edited: the following two pics show what works best for me.
Ace do you need to mount the sdcard and system in the recovery mode before you flash? Thanks for the help.
Negative... no mount on anything. Just plug into computer with USB and type the two commands into command prompt. Of course, after changing directory to where your sdk tools are

sorry but what tells you? Your computer's command prompt and like this:
# flash_image boot /sdcard/evilboot9.img ???????????
if your evilboot9.img is indeed at the root of your sdcard and you followed the above directions, there should be no error.
I'm sorry, but it it just didn't work for me that way, I don't know why. I know it was on the root of the sdcard because I still had to use the same path you have above to get it to use the evilboot9.img file. I was just pointing out, I had to mount the sdcard in order for it to work. I'm glad it worked for you the way you outlined, but I figured I would just let people know what to do if your way didn't work for them like it didn't for me :)

But now for the WiFi fix, everytime I type "mount -o remount,rw /system" it says "Usage: mount [-r] [-w] [-o options] [-t type] device directory"
and then I typed the next step which is "cp /system/lib/modules/tiwlan_drv.ko tiwlan_drv.ko.bak" and it says "cp: cannot create 'tiwlan_drv.ko.bak': Read-only file system"
Does anyone know what I can do to get WiFi back up and running again?
Please provide the link for "tiwlan_drv.ko" download, I would be forever greatful
