Problem solved. the answer: [APP]SuperOneClick v1.9.1 (Root, Unroot, Enable Non-Market App) - xda-developers
I personally used v1.7 but the latest version should work.
Follow the directions at How To: Root Your Android Phone (SuperOneClick Method) | TheUnlockr with these exceptions:
I had usb mass storage mounted but I'm not sure if this matters but to replicate my experience set it to usb mass storage.
When it goes to test it may fail. When you get root is installed power off the phone and restart it. There you go you have root.... well with out the ability to flash custom ROMS yet.
I suggest installing Root Checker | AppBrain Android Market to verify this...
I still have that pesky locked bootloader but now I can remove bloatware... first to go uno
