Otherwise you will have no space at all so save music etc. You should get a larger sd card.
Open odin and reflash the 2.2 tar listed in the first post. Once it has finished flashing. Copy the update.zip if you already haven't. Power off your phone. Enter recovery using the 3 button combo. Once stock recovery shows up hit reinstall packages until it finally installs. Then proceed to create the partition. Then follow the rest of the steps in the guide.

I did exactly this, but one thing that appaears different for me from the guide is that in the 3rd step:
"3. Once your phone boots up and is setup copy CWM update.zip to the root of your external SD card. Do this by selecting the "mount usb storage" option in the notification bar."
So, when I reboot after flashing this eugene rom, I can't mount the external sd, even if i open the notification bar, select the option to mount usb storage and it shows that usb is plugged/mounted (droid turns from green to orange) I get no sd access on PC (neither in phone), the drive don't show as if had any space, formatting options... nothing. But, when inserting the sd himself on the PC I can access it normally, showing that the sd is working ok. So, with the PC I put update.zip and the ICS rom (passion v13) on sd root, reinserting the sd on phone and getting into the stock recovery, I hit "reinstall packages" many times and keep getting the message:
"E:Can't open /sdcard/update.zip (No such file or Directory)
Is the problem that I'm getting in the 3rd step related to this? I'm trying with 2 cards, one with 2gb and other with 16gb and the reinstall packages isn't working.

The option to "Apply/ Flash update.zip" appears on the recovery menu of the Lidroid rom that I can odin flash too, but this one doesn't boot (and the guide says to use the eugene, anyway), ang trying to "apply update.zip"/"reinstall packages" I get the same error (no file found in /sdcard etc.)
