Default Rooting and Installing custom ROMs

After using Galaxy S for almost 2 years, finally i have decided to root it and install the latest ICS firmware.

I have no idea about what rooting is and how to install custom ROM.
Can any one help me out or point to me a link with step by step instructions.

Thanks a lot.

Welcome to Android Forums!

I have moved your thread to the "all things root" section of this forum so that others with knowledge of rooting can post in this thread.
There is also a lot of basic rooting help posted above, in the "stickies" of the "all things root" forum that should help out a lot.
Good Luck, and Have Fun!

I guess my first question is why do you want to root it then if you don't know what rooting is?

What firmware are you on.check settings > about phone..
You will need to use Odin software to flash/update root file for your firmware.. Once you have root you can install cwm recovery..
I can post links for xxjvu firmware & it's root process
