Default How do I Root my Pandigital 7 ?

I recently purchased a Pandigital 7 e-reader (white). I have read that you can do what is called Rooting to it with the following results.

"to root it. Itís one of the easiest things to root, and literally takes 2 to 3 minutes to do. Once you do this, you will turn this basic eReader into an Android 2.0 hybrid tablet. From here you will have full access to the Official Google Marketplace (Yes, full working access), plus be able to play games, stream music/videos, and a bunch of other goodies.The other neat part about rooting your (now tablet) is that you are still able to retain the eReader capability of this device. You will still be able to use the Barns and Nobles eBook app, and download eBooks directly from Barns and Nobles. Or, due to the versatility of Android, you can install Amazonís Kindle app and download eBooks that way."

I am not very good at figuring this out but would like to know if any of you can give me an easy step by step through this process so that I can easily do this?

Are you sure it needs to be rooted? Pandigital has been selling the white model as the "eReader Tablet" for the last several months. If it mentions a tablet on the box they've done the rooting for you.

If you're not sure, the dead giveaway is the rooted models have this in the upper left hand corner:

If rooted will the pandigital 7" be able to read audio books, or is there a way to make that possible?

I have a Pandigital 7 and it came without Android Market and I've been battling for months to get it but you apparently have to have a root just to override the Market Google account and get it to accept your device but no rooting software has yet worked for me. Help!
