now i rebooted into recovery and it says:
"A custom OS can cause critical problems in phone and installed applications.

If you want to download a custom OS, press the volume up key.
Otherwise, press the volume down key to cancel"

I think what has happened is because I flashed the ROM via Rom Manager
DO NOT FLASH ROM FROM ROM MANAGER ONLY USE IT TO UPDATE CLOCKWORK MOD
why do i have to learn everything the hard way?? Oh, thats right, because I'm a noob

Bragger1982....its not as difficult as you think to us custom ROMs. I found the easy was is to us TWRP backup. My advise is to make nandroid backups frequently until you are comfortable with your ROM. Once you have a good backup, you can bounce around from ROM to ROM and not worry about any issues.
I currently have backups on my SD card for Liquidsmooth, Liquid Touchwiz, CyanogenMod and Stock TW. It is also very important to back up your apps using TitaniumBackup.
