DVKF4 is for Telstra in Australia, from what I can tell.

Edit to add: forgot to say; carrier and location are unimportant when rooting, so that's why I said any insecure KF4 kernel should work for you.
ahhhh okay, thanks for explaining that, Does using any KF4, affect what roms i could use later on at all? sorry for asking so many nooby questions.

So i'd just need to find the kernels, and then i assume find out about what program to root and flash with? and then how to install roms and stuff etc?

Yep. Everything you need to know is in the Stickies, CFRoot thread, the carrier branded firmware thread & the country specific/non branded firmware thread.

So far as flashing custom roms or kernels go, follow whatever instructions these particular roms or kernels have.

Those firmware threads I linked you to have tutorials that shows you how to use Odin which you can use to root your phone initially. You can also flash stock roms if you ever need to at some point in the future with it. Once your phone is rooted, most custom roms/kernels are flashed via CWM (or Mobile Odin).
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !
Failure to search is the leading cause of male impotence on XDA
If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?
