    So I rooted,
    Put CM6 on my SD card
    created a nandroid backup
    and then installed CM6
    Now i rebooted and i have the screen with the android on a skateboard and it says cyanogen(mod)
    It keeps popping up like its loading and I've read it can take some time but I feel like it has gone on for 15 minutes

    All I'm wondering is if I'm on the right track

    Sounds like you're in a boot loop. Pull the battery and boot into recovery mode again. Do a factory wipe, as well as dalvik-cache wipe. The reflash the rom and rebbot. That should work. let me know if it doesn't.

    add them the same way you installed the ROM.
    Go to recovery, instal zip from sd, click the addon and let it work its magic. should only take a few seconds, reboot, and enjoy

    Just don't wipe before flashing the google add-ons. ;)

    same thing happened to me when i forgot to do a wipe. but on another note, and i apologize for thread jacking but he said problem solved, i've never successfully wiped the dalvick-cache. it always gives me an error, which at this moment i can't remember what it says. but i've never had a problem installing various roms due to it.
