    How is this done. Just through system settings or will I have to plug in and change system folders around?

    Just thru the settings, if you have the mp3 on your sdcard.

    Go thru the settings to change your ringtones but instead of choosing android system, choose music.

    I have several MP3s on my sdcard but when i go to change the ringtones, it only shows me that stock ringtones not what is on my SDcard. Do they need to be in the "my_ringtones" folder or can they be from my "my_music" folder?

    They can be anywhere on the SD card. It shows you stock ringtones because you're choosing android system, choose music instead, it will show you every mp3 you have.

    When I go into settings>Sound and set a ringtone, there is not an option to specify where it pulls from. DX with the rooted .596, but even on stock FroYo there was not an option. No hidden menu options either that I can find.
    So, from what I have seen you can move the .mp3 into /sdcard/media/audio/ringtones and it will show up in your list. You can also use a free app such as Ringdroid and set it that way.

    It is not a hidden menu.

    Menu - settings - sound - phone ringtone.

    You should see Android system, music, and one other I believe. What do you see in the phone ringtone menu?

    I select phone rington and just have a list to scroll through of different ringtones. There is no option anywhere in the SOund settings to change the source.
    Are you using a custom ROM or anything?
