THE PROBLEM WITH USB DEBUGGING HAS BEEN FIXED. THIS PROCEDURE SEEMS PRETTY SAFE NOW. ONLY FURTHER TESTING WILL TELL FOR SURE.

IF YOU PERFORMED THIS PROCEDURE PREVIOUSLY AND YOU HAVE USB DEBUGGING STUCK ON, SKIP TO WHERE YOU SEE *** USB DEBUGGING FIX ***. ***

You'll need the Android SDK (guide to download and install is here)
You'll need the USB drivers (Stickied post in this forum)
You'll need root access (look for the Captivate Root thread by chaoscentral)
You'll need Busybox (available on the market after you root the phone)

Connect USB to phone with USB Debugging ON
Command prompt
cd to SDK install directory
cd tools
adb shell
su
After I type su.. I wait about 10 secs and it returns:

Permission Denied


What did I miss?

Root method was using the update.zip file..
