I too was nervous about rooting, but read everything over until I felt it was time to just "go for it". And I'm sure glad I did. Once you have a rooted and ROM'd droid, there is no going back. Running an overclocked Droid with all the goodies the Dev's added for us makes one incredible phone/computer. I've never regretted it. The simplest approach is through DMUpdater from DroidMod - Everything Droid doesn't, DroidMod does.. Read it over and give it a try.
