    Unlocking the bootloader allows you to flash unofficial (rooted) images. You can flash a custom recovery, and then use that to root your phone very easily...

    First thing you need to do is get communication between your phone and PC.

    Take a look at this thread, and complete the actions in the first post:
    http://www.nexusoneforum.net/forum/n...e-windows.html

    Once you've done that, put your phone in the fastboot mode, connect to the pc and confirm connection with "fastboot devices". If you get a device number in the response, type "fastboot oem unlock"...

    This will wipe your data and settings, so backup what you think is important (or ask questions).

    Your SD will not change.

    As far as backup, you're pretty limited. Check out MyBackup in the market, and theres also a few aps that will backup APNs etc. Your email, contacts and aps should be stored in the cloud, but the data (game scores, passwords, etc) will be lost...

    Well, since your goal is to root, I would just install a custom ROM first, and then try to fix it later...
