After you flash the superuser zip in recovery, you're supposed to reboot so that the su app loads and the binary is available in Android. At that point, you're rooted. Unless you didn't reboot and run the commands while your device was running, there's no reason it shouldn't have worked. I think you may have missed a step somewhere.
Also you would still be S-ON at that point. Rooting is not the same as NAND unlocked (S-OFF). If all you wanted was root access, the HTC unlock process gives you the ability to get that just by flashing a custom recovery.
