    AFAIK Partitioning in rom Manager is broken anyway (I always use Acronis disk director to partition my cards)..you can check your clockwork install by shutting down phone and powering up holding power button and volume down.

    Rom manager should tell you what version of clockwork is installed though (at top iirc)

    Rom manager doesn't use your native clockwork flash (flashed via the unrevoked process). Rather it puts it on SD card as Update.zip and applies it at boot, which is how it gets to clockwork.

    When we originally started rooting the desire, we were flashing a htc engineering recover which only really had the ability to apply update.zip. Rom manager was a work around for this.

    You need to choose the first option in rom manager "flash clockworkmod recovery" or similar.

    Partitioning 95% works. Sometimes it doesnt.
