Cool! I have Odin and I plugged in the phone and the drivers were installed. I hit the "Start" button and now it has sat there for about an hour saying "Do not turn off target".
I hope I am on the right track... does it take a long time to down load?

oh ho.... I unplugged it and now I have some strange screen with a phone and computer with a yellow exclamation point between them.... I think that I am screwed.
edit... Got it back to downloading... Odin says Added!

If it doesn't say anything else, just unplug it and start over. Pull the battery and leave it out for a minute or two, and then try again. Make sure you open Odin BEFORE plugging in your phone, and maybe try a different USB port.

This is still recoverable. When it wont power on at all, your goal is to get the "red text" to show up. From there, you can get to DL mode. I am guessing you had a voodoo kernel installed when you flashed? If so, you need to put a checkmark in the repartition box on Odin, or this can happen. I have been here a couple times, and it is not a brick.
This is going to sound like magic, but it does work.
Connect your phone to your USB (rear port).
Open ODIN up
Remove the battery
Insert the battery
Press and HOLD VOLUP and POWER until red text shows up
Now, hold both VOLUP, VOLDOWN and POWER.
Wait for the screen to go dark and release the POWER button while still holding both VOLUME buttons down.
I recommend NOT using the one-click ODIN. There is a re-partition checkbox on the real Odin that you should use if coming back from a voodoo kernel as well as a version of stock that includes the 3 button fix. If you need help finding that, I can try.

I am not positive, but pretty sure, the phones can crap out on you like that when you ODIN flash on top of a voodoo enabled kernel. Many people may have seen the blue (sometimes red) screen and just pull the battery and go again... but sometimes this happens.
Glad to hear you got it working .
