    IIRC that old guide doesn't work with all Magics.

    For more upto date information I'd use the cyanogenmod wiki as a guide

    HTC Magic - CyanogenMod Wiki

    I'd also reccommend cyanogenmod if you're looking for a good stable custom ROM. I'm currently running CM 6 RC3 their Beta of a Froyo ROM.

    Do a Google search for "universal androot" it is the easiest and quickest root. after its rooted use ROM Manager to install custom recovery.
