    Ok so I am new to the custom rom scene, and I'm not too sure about a couple things. When I download the custom rom, it usually comes in a zip file. However it is not an "update.zip", there are a bunch of folders: meta-inf, sdcard, system, and a file called boot. Not sure what to do with these.

    DO NOT unzip the file!

    You just re-name it update.zip and place it on your SD card or if you have a file manager like Astro you can place it on your SD and then rename it.
    Be careful because if you do it on your computer Windows may automatically add the .zip extension so you would end up with a file named update.zip.zip which will not work.
    If you are using ROM manager you don't need to rename just choose "Install from SD" and pick the file you want to install.
