    Go to AngDroid's ROM section (look under D2 ROMs) and read his post there on "Hacking":

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/angdroid/87770-droid-2-hacking-guide.html

    Then download and install one of his ROMs on his Test ROMs thread...says test, but they are solid and ready to go in my experience with them...

    He is going to more formally release them tomorrow, I believe, so if you want to wait a bit and get them tomorrow you can do that.

    Read all instructions twice and follow them carefully.

    Make a back up of your system using Clockwork Recovery before doing anything to your system (aside from rooting it, of course).

    Buy Droid Root Explorer from the Market - if you're rooted, it's a must-have app.

    Have fun...
