    Really simple actually:

    Latest recovery required (0.14.3 as of this writing)
    Go to backup/restore > Advanced Nandroid backup > Enable ALL partitions > Preform backup

    Done. Save it!

    How can you enable all partitions? You cant backup the SDcard because you will run out of room... no?

    Im new to this, and not really sure how to even install nandroid.

    Well, to get nandroid backups you have to install sirpsychos's recovery, instructions to do so are here: Software:Images - Droid-Devs
    You need the newest version though, 0.14.3, get it at Sholes
    Instead of typing 0.14.1 from those instructions, use 0.14.3

    And your sdcard won't be touched at all.

    Wouldnt it be best to have a backup of an unrooted BASE os? Is this a restore to how you have your phone NOW or a restore to factory?

    It will restore to however your phone was setup when you backed it up using nandroid.

    Me third. I would really like to have a way to get back to stock. How would I do that at this point? I am rooted. I have 0.14.3, and wifi tether but it has caused me headaches in performance. I want my droid back.

    Hmm, an unrooted 2.0.1 with the default recovery menu would be a good backup to have, in case anything were to happen to the phone where you could only access recovery but you couldn't fix what the problem was. I'd like to make one, but I don't know where I could get the original recovery menu, nor do I know how I could make a nandroid backup of it if when I have it on my phone I can't do nandroid backups..... I'll have to look into this later tonight.

    Would be nice. To have the option to revert back to stock 2.0.1 would be great. I love the idea of rooting and everything but it doesn't seem to be stable yet.

    That's the problem. To install SirPsychoS' recovery, we have to root, and flash stuff. By then it's no longer a stock firmware. =[.
