Yes it is definatly possible.
There is a sticky called "Rooting the LG Optimus S with software version LS670ZVD" in the "LG Optimus S Rooting, ROMs, and Hacks" portion of the forum.
I did it for a much fast/responsive phone without all the bloat and to install Debian Linux.
Rooting the Optimus opens big doors.

I know rooting voids the warranty, but I do shell out monthly for sprint's protection plan. if I were to root and something was to happen to the phone to warrant repair, could I root and go back to stock before I take in it in to a sprint store? would they have any way of really knowing?

Then you can bring it into you local handy sprint store to replace it if needed or repair it if needed.
Hope this helps

There is a great tool, OSCC by drew. This will alow you to flash back simply to stock recovery after you return your ROM back to stock.
All is possible and there are tons of peeps willing to help out

I just have a lot of questions today, sorry.
but I just searched my sd for the gingerbreak.apk and I don't have it on there? but I did use gingerbreak to root, as per the stickied thread's instructions. if it put it on my droid, would it make it easier to ever unroot later on down the road?
