Restart your phone and boot it up holding Power + X (that is the method on the Droid at least to get into recovery)

If you have a triangle with a exclamation point you don't have a custom recovery and possibly aren't rooted.

But once you get to that screen you can press volume up and camera to get into your stock recovery settings.

factory reset/wipe data
wipe cache
install ROM from sd card (if you have that option)
find ROM click it, let your phone do the rest
then reboot

or just download ROM Manager from the market because it makes it really easy for noobs to flash ROMs and make backups and flash a custom recovery.

It doesn't matter the method of how you rooted your phone.

When you click on boot into recovery from ROM Manager, does a superuser screen pop up and ask you for permission?

With only those 4 options you don't have clockworkmod recovery, it sounds stock.

And you don't have to be in recovery to do a backup, try it from within ROM Manager. click backup current ROM and it will do the rest for you.

You have stock recovery so you can't create a back-up.

Try and flash clockwork recovery from within ROM Manager again.

But if it doesn't work and you still want to load the custom ROM:
1. wipe data/factory reset
2. wipe cache
3. apply sd card: update.zip
