Root should put a superuser option in your app list i think. Never really thought about root in relation to installing roms - from what aks says above sounds like it makes no difference Smiley Happy i recommend sebs new decrossef rom - had it on a couple of days and it is very nice Smiley Happy

 I found the guide here

http://orangesanfrancisco.co.uk/android/how-to-install-custom-roms-android-2-2-from-scratch-on-the-o...

Much easier to use than the one on the MoDaCo forum. Apart from the Rom of your choice which you will download

to your Pc everything is downloaded to your phone.

According to StevenHarper's guide on modaco you need to root to get clockwork on using his method.  I don't know which method you used to get clockwork on, but I imagine once you've got clockwork on you should have no problem putting a rom on.
