Default Rooting failure.

Hi, I tried rooting my phone today and somehow screwed it up. I followed a youtube video, which I would post the link here, but I'm new and I can't post links.

Basically I installed the Samsung Kies mini, restarted my computer, downloaded and extracted some Heimdall and Kernal things, moved a "zImage" file to the Heimdall folder, did all of the command prompt things... The stuff dowloaded onto my phone and restarted, the screen went all static-y, started talking to me, the restarted (showing the startup screen) and went back to the static screen. This process of rebooting and going to static goes on and on and on.

Does anyone know a way to fix this, and is there any tutorials that can out it VERY basically, since I know little about all this software stuff and probably shouldn't have attempted this in the first place. Any help is greatly appreciated!
