    Also try turning on airplane mode on too. That's what works for me.

    Same thing happened to me, I just rebooted and it worked. The program does work, so just keep trying.

    After you reboot, just let it sit there. It rooted my phone in about 5 minutes, but my friends phone took much longer. He just let it sit there.

    It shouldn't take 5 min to work, if your still sitting there after 5 min, just turn off the phone and try again. If I recall it only takes about a min to do its thing.

    You have to enable USB Debugging in Settings->Applications->Development. Otherwise z4 just sits there.

    Yep. Z4Root works great, takes 30 seconds on my DX (and I have done it several times, never more than 45 seconds to complete). As mentioned GingerBreak can also be used.
