    The only difference between the free version and the preimum is the premium has more roms and more features

    Do you have a custom recovery on your phone?

    In rom manager there's an option to download rom. From there you'll see cyanogen mod. From there you should see the different versions with the most updated version at the top

    I recently downloaded the cm7 rom a few days ago and there were some in there. If I were you I would check their website to see if your phone is supported

    Basically anywhere on the sdcard as long as you remember where...the install from sdcard option lets you look all through the sdcard
    Btw if you didn't know the "root" of the phone or "root" sdcard just means it isn't in any folders

    Did you extract the file you downloaded? Always leave it as a .zip file

    Are you using a file manager or your computer to add the files?

    Did you use the rom manager option to install from sdcard or did you just try to use a file manager like astro?
    You should see something like this with rom manager
