    There is a thread with like 20 very helpful youtube clips. Everything from doing a quick dial to rooting to unrooting. Again, there all step be step youtube videos. The thread was made by pilotcharles, hopefully he can post that link or someone else can. Good luck fellow droidian!

    Breath and relax. You should start by just getting used to what it came with. Put some music on it and maybe some tv shows or movies. The easiest way to do this is to get your movies in ipod format first then all the media is simple drop and drag. Now you have a media, phone and internet device to be content with for a bit. I see no reason to mess with rooting unless you have a specific purpose for it.

    First of all, welcome to DF. You found the place for the right answers. There is a lot you can do with the Droid, but first of all you must be patient. There's many many people here that will assist you if you have questions. You just need to read up on things. Are you sure you want to root the Droid? If so, read all about it. Then, ask for suggestions from the users here, and trust me, we'll have you pointed in the right direction. You need to relax, and you'll do well.
