I would definetly consider myself a noob to droid rooting, I have only known rooting exsisted for about 10days, took that time to research terminology and figure out what I was actually getting into. Just have to say I had about 30 heart attacks while my phone failed time and time again to bootload, tried to bail a few times and had a brick on my hands.
BUT I do have to say coming from an amature, those where definetly great directions!
And about the bootload I found if you remove the battery hold 'M' then hit power, the loader menu comes up almost instantly -just a tip for any other noobies.
Thanks again everyone! Honestly does sound more complacated then it really is
