    Save to the SD card and install it straight after CM.

    Other ROMs keep the Market etc, it was just CM that got the cease and desist.

    NANDroid backup will be unaffected, wipe just blanks /data

    Use the external card, keep it simple.

    I've merged the two threads as I was just repeating myself :D

    Nightlies are CM7, other ROMs are stock based, such as the MoDaCo Custom ROM

    I presume you're using ROM Manager to download it?

    Yes it will, makes things easier.

    CM is around 90MB and GApps is around 15MB I think.

    It will get saved in /sdcard/clockworkmod/download/something

    Wipe data/factory reset
    Like I said, download this one if you're unsure: gapps-gb-20110727-gtalkvid-signed.zip
    Yes, that's where they're meant to be.

    CM uses the external card as /sdcard and the internal card as /mnt/emmc (unless you choose to swap them over)

    No, leave it in place, files need to be read from it.

    That's the beauty of it, customize it to your liking. I use Launcher2 taken from the T-Mobile G2 which is the stock Android launcher but with 7 screens.
