UPDATE: I finally got the animation to work. Wow, what an insane amount of time for something so insignificant but I'm glad I kept trying after fail after fail.

I really need help with this.
I downloaded a new boot animation, renamed it to 'bootanimation.zip'.
put it in the folder with the sdk tools. When I get to the command prompt, and type in the adb push bootanimation.zip/data/local, the pc screen shows a bunch of commands for adb. Doesnt seem like its getting pushed to my phone. When I reboot my phone, its the same old bootanimation (in my case its droid mod, boring).
Ive installed the sdk.exe, got all the downloads. Changed the environmental path, etc. Oh, and when I type adb devices, it shows my phone - so I know my drivers are working.
Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

I don't know if it was a typo on your post, but you didn't have a space between the .zip and /
Also, if you type an adb command and it gives you all that mumbo jumbo, scroll back to the top and see if it gives you an error message.
I did this for my droid eris and it worked perfectly but I was wondering if there is a way to add sound to the boot animation. I kind of want my eris to say droid when it boots up like the moto droid because I think that is cool and it is the droid eris after all.
I did this on my Eris and everything seems to go through [after the command i saw it saying the data was transferred to the phone] but when i reboot i only see the same old verizon animation.....I noticed also when looking thought my folders with Astro in the data folder there is nothing in there, no local folder or bootanimation.zip, and in the system/media/boot folder I see the original verizon boot....my question is if it went through should I see a local/bootanimation.zip in the data folder when I view through Astro? And if so, what would be the reason is isnt putting it there and how would i get it there.....
