    Go to the market and download a program that requires root access such as quick boot.

    If the program works then you are rooted.

    Download "Terminal Emulator" from the market. Fire it up, type "su" (no quotes). If $ changes to #, you're root... ftw.

    As in a new program, no.

    It's just like a computer when you sign in as an admin... you just get more access to stuff.

    Do you mind if I ask what your reason for rooting is?
