Thanks to all the smart folks here, I've managed to root my Droid and still have it work.

I did do something wrong at first and got caught up in a loop on the boot screen, but restored from the backup that I made before trying to root and it worked fine. Still a long way to go to understand the inside stuff, but at its a start.

Thanks again for all the FAQ's and such, I would have had a new brick on my desk without all of your help!
