    I'd suggest post 13 of the 1st link in my signature. This is an easy to follow guide someone wrote up.

    install rsd lite
    install sprecovery with rsd lite
    flash a rooted rom (and that guide gives the link to the stock rooted rom for 2.2)

    If you have any issues installing rsd lite then visit the 3rd link in my signature.

    And if you get stuck, you know where to find us:)

    I personally would like to thank you for your second link. I think in about 2+ hours I'll have gone from stuck on M logo to rooted and on my way to prior status!
