Default Beginners guide to rooting?

I'm trying to root my Streak. Not so that I can put in any new ROMS, just so that I can tweak slightly the stock rom that's already in there. I've been searching hard for a simple guide (for those new to all this), but everything I find (90% of which is on xda developers), immediately launches into instructions such as "Have Streakmod installed" or "Start by flashing with recovery recovery.img", all of which is Greek to a beginner like myself.

Can anyone recommend a step-by-step guide/introduction to rooting? I'm not an idiot, I'm PC literate and I'm sure I'll pick it up quickly, but everything I've thus far found on line immediately assumes a prior degree of knowledge, which I - and surely many others interested in rooting - don't have.

Any advice anyone can offer would be very gratefully received.
