    I'm not sure if this is a joke thread or not.

    1) pull it off
    2) Read this
    3) use search

    If you are on 2.1 then you can use simple root. Make sure you use the one designed for your version of 2.1. I am pretty sure you are on 1.47 so you can use this: [Program] Updated: 8-5-10: 1 Click SimpleRoot OTA 1.47.651.1 Edition - xda-developers. Never take an OTA from Sprint or you will lose root (unless you have unRevoked Forever).

    You will get 2.2 once you complete simpleroot and flash a 2.2 based ROM.

    I'm calling troll. For someone who knew nothing about rooting to get through the first steps in the guide that fast seems unlikely, now s/he seems to be backtracking and doesnt know how to mount the sd card? Just sayin...

    All of the ROMs you mentioned are using the latest OTA so they are 2.2. To mount the SD card on the computer, plug in the USB, pull down the notification menu (if it doesn't pop up), select use as disk drive and hit done. If you use simpleroot, you do not need unRevoked at all. As long as you downgraded correctly, simpleroot will root your phone.
