    Did you install the usb drivers?
    Did you check to see if the computer can see the phone ?
    Do you understand line commands?
    I dont know where you are stuck from the info you provided

    Try reading these 2 instructions

    That is what I was following. I downloaded and updated everything in SDK. I turned on debugging in Development as instructed. I opened cmd. And. Typed cd. Then C:\n1\tools. Then I typed in fastboot-windows oem unlock and it stays on waiting for device.

    This was in fastboot mode and XP said device is ready to use

    I take it the sdk is expanded in the N1folder?
    Try C:\n1\tools\fastboot fastboot oem unlock
    If that doesnt work check that youre actually connected to the phone
    C:\n1\tools\fastboot fastboot devices
    this should return a series of numbers and letters which is the serial number of your device
    Im going from memory here so bare with me

    I have it powered on and it detects it, I have debugging on and USB for transferring files. Once I power down and boot into fastboot mode, My computer doesn't detect it

    Go into fastboot through ADB using the Android SDK.

    type 'adb shell reboot bootloader' from the cmd
    once your in type 'fastboot devices' to ensure the phone is recognized

    continue on your merry way..........

    You dont boot into fastboot white screen just turn the phone on whatever way you had it when the phone was recognized and do the line commands from above
    Your using the fastboot command from the sdk you installed
    Look in the tools folder of the sdk you will see fastboot and adb in there
    The fastboot white screen will not let the phone unlock & will not let the phone talk to the computer

    Thanks all for your help. What happened was with SDK it didn't install the drivers to work while in fastboot mode. I had to install them manually while in fastboot and it worked. I am totally rooted and unlocked :D

    Nice! Tho I think Flashing a Recovery (Amon_ra or Clockworkmod) and doing a Nandroid Backup would come first...Assuming you have not done it...
