weill since you have never flashed you could make a paper weight in the worst case. There are ways to recover from a bad flash, but being you are new to the opperation, it may be a little beyond your realm of comfort. Be sure to read this and other threads and get a good grasp on flashing. If you have any specific questions along the way feel free to ask. I, myself, am not the greatest with flashing things, but I can get by. If I can do it, it cant be all that bad I will see if I can find a link to Dolfs boot CD, that makes things a bit easier.
