Thanks guys for explaining the basics.
Yes, after installing Recovery Control (or Recovery Updater), it will ask if you are S-ON / Unlocked with HTC dev. You say yes and it will make it so you will not need to use fastboot except with some experimental ROMs. (Like the Sense 4.0 ROMs require fastboot)

Alright downloaded and installed JDK and the full SDK. I see the folder in my files. But following the directions the Android SDK manager never opened like it said it would. The SDK manager also shows up in my start up menu but it doesn't open there either.

Beginning to take this as a sign that I am not supposed to root this phone.....
I have a guide on how to set up the Android SDK here: http://androidforums.com/evo-3d-all-things-root/494212-complete-newbies-guide-rooting-flashing-roms-kernels-using-fastboot-updated-3-17-a-2.html#post4131303
