    I am wondering if anyone has had any success with tethering a Verizon Droid X to your computer for internet service (Hot Spot) using an app (like easy tether or other?? ..) without getting charged the Verizon Hot Spot fee's?

    If you're too lazy to read:

    Rooting is similar to having administrative access to a PC. If you're at work or school and they won't let you mess with certain settings, rooting lets you gain access to them.

    Advantages: free tethering, lots of root only apps, custom roms, etc.

    Disadvantages: Voids your warranty. (Most roots can be unrooted which makes what you did undetectable if you have to send your phone in.)

    I suggest you download z4root from the market and try it out.
