I did hit a snag and wound up with the little green android guy in the middle of the screen and it wouldn't boot, after initially booting into recovery mode while I was formatting the sd card and copying the .zip file to it. It seemed to have something to do with the SIM card not being in place, or perhaps it was just a coincidence. ANyhow, after several tries to get it to restart into recovery mode, it worked and I managed to install from the .zip file. Certainly didn't feel like a "smooth" process to me, as it was with rooting my Droid and scared me to death, especially since ADB wasn't connecting to it at all. Was afraid I was stuck. But, alas... it seems to have worked and it is running and I have SuperUser privledges... so, mission accomplished.
