fastboot flash recovery recoveryname.img

reboot the phone with fastboot reboot

for a custom rom,i might suggest your first one to be a somewhat stockish one,so id recomend this one:

as doogald mentioned,youre on an older radio,so you can update that if you want by downloading this zip file and installig it in recovery:

you can install the radio and rom at the same time if you want,or you can do one first,then the other later.

youll just download,transfer to sd card,then flash them in recovery like you did the other files.

whenever yuo change roms,its not a bad idea to do a "full wipe" in recovery wich consists of:
-data/factory reset
-dalvik cache

bobcat has a good guide on flashing roms here:
Flashing Rom's without a PC

you can subsitute steps 3-9 with "download on to pc,transfer to sd card" if you dont want to use the phone itself to do the downloading.

just holler if you have any more questions!

the rom and radio info are above. what prollems are you having trying to download the roms? are you using the phone,or your PC?

if youre having prollems downloading them directly to the phone,then download with the PC,then transfer the rom to the sd card.
