    Since it's a new phone and it sounds like you didn't do a backup or install a bootstrapper, I would flash the stock SBF, install ROM Manager, install bootstrapper, make a nandroid backup and start over again.

    ** Edit - Root your phone of course after flashing back to the stock SBF

    I had the same problem your having. First off make sure u wipe data/cache, then power on your phone by holding the power button and the home button at the same time. When the triangle appears let go and hit the search button to enter custom recovery. From there you should be able to boot update.zip. lemme know if that works as I am a noob also just did alot of research :)
