I'm also interested in rooting it, not because I'm a super techy guy but because I've read that's the only way to allow for wifi tethering without using bluetooth.

So my question: should I upgrade to 2.1 before rooting, and if so then where can I find an upgrade file?
I would upgrade to 2.1 before rooting, yes. A bit later today I will post some links and instructions to get you there. It should be sometime late this afternoon or this evening.
