Default Rooting Problem - adb is not recognized

I have been trying to root my Evo 4g all night, but no websites seem to work...

I am following this tutorial: [GUIDE] How to root Android 2.2 on the EVO 4G Outdated - xda-developers and it says to put these commands into the command line:
Quote:
adb push unrevoked-forever.zip /sdcard/
adb push flash_image /data/local/
adb push rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin /data/local/tmp/
adb push mtd-eng.img /sdcard/
adb push PC36IMG.zip /sdcard/
When I typed in the first line, the cmd is saying: "'adb' is not recognized as an internal, or external command"

This is really annoying me, how do I get around this...

I'd use the Rooting For Dummies thread in this forum personally. Espcecially cause that XDA thread says "Outdated" in the title.

I agree, that is an outdated method. Read this:

http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/194918-rooting-dummies-extras.html

If you have a newer Evo, you can't use unrevoked. There is a more difficult method available until unrevoked gets an update.

[ROOT][GUIDE] HBoot 2.02/2.10 SOFF - The Savior Edition - Upd. 12.26.10 - xda-developers

I would *not* recommend this method if you don't understand everything in it. I mean this as no insult at all, but it doesn't sound like you're ready for it.

I suggest you read up on how to use adb. I'm going to guess you don't have the android sdk or don't have it set up right. Here's a pretty good guide on it:

[GUIDE] ADB Workshop and Guide for everyone - xda-developers
