    Yea, flash a ROM and see how you like it. Just do some searching, there are more than enough discussions about this kind of thing here...

    Once you are rooted you no longer need that update file so you can mount your droid and simply delete the update file from your sd card. Then when you flash another rom or file you can name the new one update, apply it and then once it is applied you can delete it from the sd card.
