so i wanted to download a rom by Zeusdroid but when i got the instructions it stated...
"8. After the restore fishes you are going to want to go back to the main menu using the power key, and select the mount menu.
9. Mount system.
10. Plug phone into computer, and run adb from your tool folder of the android sdk.
11. Type in "/system/xbin/mk16sdpart.sh" (This is for 16GB sdcard only)
12. Wait for this to finish and then reboot your phone."

i did some research and downloaded Android Debug Bridge but i dont know how to use it at all. i really want to try out this rom and learn more about what the droid is capable of so i would appreciate it if someone could help me with this or lead to me a thread that does

thanks in advance :)
