    Do I have to rename the file I have to "bootanimation.zip" before pushing it? Or can it keep the name it has as I downloaded it? Example "decepticon.animation.zip"

    You can force adb to rename it when you do the push.
    "adb push decepticon.animation.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip"

    No problem. I will try to get some tutorials up on droidboots in the next couple of days so that it is clear to everyone.

    Have you installed the Android SDK?

    The best place to install it is to c:\android.

    Then from command prompt, not "run" do "cd c:\android\tools"
    Make sure you cut/paste the bootanimation to the android\tools folder, then from the command prompt (which should read "c:\android\tools" now) type the adb push line from the above post.

    This should be the proper sequence, I'm going off the type of my head right now.

    Yes, I installed it in that location. I'm able to click run and type "adb shell" and it brings up the dos prompt. Just a little stuck as to my next step.

    click run and type "cmd" and press enter to bring up the command prompt.
    Then type "cd c:\android\tools" and press enter to get into the android tools directory.
    Then assuming the filename you mentioned earlier is the one you are doing and you have a copy of it in you tools directory.
    Type "adb push decepticon.animation.zip /data/local/bootanimation.zip" and press enter to get the bootanimation onto your Droid.

    You have a U: drive?? Crazy! Just type "c:" and press enter. You can do it before or after typing "cd c:\android\tools", but it's probably more intuitive to do it before so that you can see the result as you cd to the tools directory.

    I always look for the hard stuff and never see the easy fixes. That was it the whole time. Got it working and all is good.

    I owe you guys!!

    If you've already rooted your Droid, then the easiest way I found to load custom boot anims is via Root Explorer.

    get a custom boot anim.
    rename the zip to bootanimation.zip
    mount the sd card
    place the renamed zip onto the sdcard's top directory
    unmount
    load root explorer
    navigate to /sdcard and find bootanimation.zip
    long press to copy it
    navigate to system/media
    select mount r/w
    delete bootanimation.zip
    paste bootanimation.zip
    select mount r/o

    Exit root explorer and reboot. Works for me.
