Please ignore my prior post. Went back and redid everything from step1.
It worked.. I am now rooted.
what is the etiquette as far as posting a link to a different forum? I did my first root with this guide and feel I did benefit from doing it this way as I got ADB installed (and my Windows system path variable adjusted) and a little experience with it.
But after restoring to stock I found a guide which provided a much easier way to do root, using ODIN.

My second rooting was down with the instructions found on site linked below and was actually done over USB debugging connection using SUPERONECLICK. I did need to flash DJ05 radio with ODIN, a fact I stumbled on later.
Fascinate Root Instuctions
I had used ODIN to restore my phone to stock:
[ODIN] Full DI01 ODIN Package - xda-developers
mrdroid - how about a "Newbie Guide to Install DL09" ?! I breezed right through rooting my new Fascinate a couple months ago with this guide, but the instructions to flash this ROM aren't quite as precise as what I fell comfortable with...
nvm... once I found the link to download Odin, I was able to install DL09 then rerooted using these instructions, again!

I rooted my device from this guide, but I didn't add any other ROMs, etc then what was necissary to get root access on my Fascinate.
I plan on returning my phone and exchanging it for the Droid X instead, do I need to restore my phone and remove root before I return it to Verizon? If so, based off this guide how do I go about doing that?
I followed the steps that you gave and it was really easy. I didn't know what to do from there and after reading some of the posts, I downloaded titanium backup. I uninstalled all of the verizon placed applications and their icons disappeared. I now have the kindle icon on my screen but when i got to uninstall it, it isn't in the list. How do i get rid of it?
