    1) Rooting alone wont block OTA updates, so you'll have to deal with them any number of ways. You can ignore them, you can apply them and hope you can re-root, or you can use SPRecovery and hope it can block them for you.

    2) ClockworkMod is another recovery program, used primarily by Koush and the CyanogenMod team, but supported by most Devs now. I suspect it will be the new standard here pretty soon.

    3) BB, like all other ROMs, require a custom kernel to overclock. BB handles the overclocking control by itself, so you dont need SetCPU, but you still need a kernel to allow the OC to take place.

    Easiest thing for you would be to root, and use the premium version of ROM Manager to get BB. It will prompt you and let you chose the kernel you want.

    Since you're rooting, it shouldnt matter. I'd just ignore it, since you're going to be rooting and flashing to a different ROM anyway. Worst case scenario is you use the 2.0.1 SBF and flash back to that, root, and then do the ROM Manager thing.

    Yes it will replace sp recovery with clockwork. Don't worry it will not affect anything in a bad way. ROM manager just makes it a lot easier to switch roms. You basically just choose what options you want and sit back and let it do do its magic. I prefer clockwork over sp recovery anyways.

    Alright and the way to get back to stock would be the same way with Clockwork?If i install bugless beast via rom manager what kernel should i use?I read that if your droid doesent support the kernel it wont boot what do i do after that to fix that and try a differet kernel?

    Yes, CM allows you to flash stock ROMs. If you want to go completely stock (no more custom recovery), then you can use an SBF. There are a lot of ways to revert to stock.

    Make sure you backup your current ROM first (which can be done in ROM Manager).

    I'm using BB and Bekit's 1.1Ghz 7 Slot LV and it works great.

    If you get stuck with an unsupported kernel (or really anytime you bork it bad enough to prevent booting), then you can boot manually into CM Recovery, by holding X when you power the phone on. You can restore to your previous state, and try again.

    You should be fine with any of the kernels. Since you're new to all of this, 800 is a good place to start. If you're happy with the performance, then you can stop. If you want more, then go ahead and see what 1000 gets you. Wash, rinse, repeat.

    You really shouldnt have any problems up to 1100, but we wont know FOR SURE until you do it. Just watch for any instability, odd force closes, and extraneous heat for extended periods of time.
