    How to root the Droid 2
    Setup:
    - Install adb (here) and Motorola drivers (here)
    - Download attached archive
    - Extract to a directory, I used c:\Droid2Root
    - Make sure you have USB degugging enabled
    - Change connection to PC Mode

    Process:
    - Open command prompt
    - cd c:/wherever-your-sdk-tools-folder-is
    - adb devices (to verify the connection)
    - cd c:/Droid2Root
    - adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    - adb shell
    - cd data/local/tmp
    - chmod 0755 rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
    - ./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin

    - let the process run until it returns you to c:/Droid2Root
    - cd c:/wherever-your-sdk-tools-folder-is
    - adb devices (to verify the connection)
    - adh shell (you should now have a # prompt)
    - exit

    - cd c:/Droid2Root
    - adb push Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
    - adb push su /system/bin/su
    - adb push busybox /system/bin/busybox
    - adb shell
    - chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
    - chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
    - exit

    I'm sure there are certain steps that could be streamlined or eliminated, so please feel free to make a suggestion and I'll edit the post.

    It says Linux. Does that mean it will work in a Mac? Or is this just for PC?

    so the driver that you posted is needed for the root process.
