depending upon the rom , most are included but some aren't . Because flashing the boot.img is the most complete way to avoid errors with mainver...issues with the ph98img file etc...
In Amon Ra, wipe like you normally do installing a rom and install rom. Once done, while still in recovery go back to main recovery menu and select developer options. Under that menu.. select reboot to bootloader.
Now, make sure you have your phone connected to the computer using the usb cord. Select fastboot, so now with phone connected you should see fastbootusb in white letters over a red background.
Take the boot.img you downloaded and make sure its not in a zip file and place it in the folder you used to unlock which contains fastboot.
Bring up your command prompt like you did to unlock, change directory to that folder if need be.
Then simply type fastboot flash boot boot.img then you will see finding, sending , writing.. bla bla bla .. should finish by showing you the total time taking the process. Now.. simply reboot phone and you will now boot into your Rom.
