    Your main version is older than the version number of the Engineering Image. Use the leak root method.

    Are you trying the old http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-eris/53963-guide-stock-1-5-latest-root-2-1-a.html method?

    You might want to try using this instead: http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-eris/127861-universal-eris-root-dummies.html (this method does not require use of the the Android SDK and can be done completely from your phone).

    This method does not require installation of a base root ROM since it allows you to install a custom recovery partition and then flash a custom ROM of your choice (without that pesky "main version is older" issue).

    There is also this method: http://androidforums.com/htc-droid-eris/125436-detailed-leak-root-tutorial.html that uses the Android SDK (its essentially the same as the "Universal" method above).

    Hope this helps.
