    after you have rooted, you need rom manager, you flash recovery with it, and make a backup.
    Cm7 links can be found in op of nightlies thread by crondable. Cm7 comes with a kernel baked into it so you won't need to flash one.
    You will also want to look into titanium backup.
    And make sure you read alot before you do anything.

    PLEEEAAAASSSEEEE!!! After you root before you ANYTHING, make a Nandroid backup first!!! If you don't know what that is you need to read some more. If you do know what that is take my advice and DO IT. It will one day save your bacon after you've goofed your phone and don't know what else to do you can always revert to your back up and its like nothing ever happened.

    ROMs, kernels, CM7, all take a back seat to making your nandroid backup.

    2 more questions.. #1. Is the unrevoked forever required, or an option (turn s-on to s-off)? #2. Can I get custom roms directly from my phone or do I have to get them off computer first, hen put them on phone?

    #1 No. The current version of Unrevoked does S-Off by default.

    #2 Either or both. You can use ROM Manager to download ROM's, but I would flash them manually. Also you can go direct to the website on the phone to download, or you can download on PC and copy over. It all depends on how reliable your downloads are on 3G. If thay are good your OK, If not use Wi-Fi on the phone or the PC.

    Hope this helps.

    Let it sit on the Skateboarder for 10 min or more. First boot on a new ROM can take what seems like FOREVER!.
