Rooting this thing is INCREDIBLY easy, I just did it last night. Took about 5 minutes after downloading the file.
1. download a file
2. unzip it
3. write it to a microSD card
4. insert card into Nook
5. connect Nook to PC via USB, it will boot from the SD card
6. let it boot up
7. disconnect USB, remove SD card.
Don't be scared, find the Nook Color Wiki thing and follow the instructions exatcly, boom - rooted. After that, you'll have the Android Market, GMail and will be able to download apps to the NC.
