Need help with installing ROM.

So far, I have rooted the phone. The bootloader says the device is unlocked.
Where do I go from here?

I have a ROM picked out already, it's on the SD card, on the phone, all ready to go. The problem I'm having is I have no idea how to "reboot to recovery" in the ROM instalation steps when I can't figure how to install a recovery like CWM (which doesn't seem to be avaliable for this phone?).

I've been at this for an hour and a half and so far I've made no progress other than simply frustrating myself with my inability to figure out what seems to be something so simple.

I have a fully rooted and moded Atrix2, but I was able to install CWM Recovery from google play, and it's all simple from there, but that's where I'm stuck at with this AtrixHD, I can't find a recovery to install to flash ROM, flash gapps, clear dalvic, and carry on my happy way.

I've been searching and trying more things and with no luck. It's been two hours now. I can't find a CWM Recovery to install, and TWRP just gives me dead-droid that I have to unscrew the battery connector to hard reset the phone to go back and try again.

I've been refraining from posting this, but I'm going to bed now and I've had no luck at all. Really could just use some help.

Use myth tools to install cwm. You can also download the latest cwm or Philz and flash it in fastboot mode.

Myth Tools is a windows binary, I'm running linux, so it doesn't do me much good at all.
Also, I don't know where to get the latest CWM. Haven't heard of Philz, but I'll see if I can find it. As for flashing it in fastboot mode, never done that before (since I never had to with old phone), so not entirely sure how to.

Found the how to flash a recovery finally http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_CM_for_mb886 no longer stuck now. Installing ROM as I type this.

Yes, ROM is loaded onto the phone already now, I was stuck at not having CWM recovery, but I found a how-to with replacing it now.
I just wasn't having luck finding out what to do with that step. It's kinda a learning curve with installing custom roms, once you learn it, it's simple, but with every device being somewhat different and needing special steps for some devices, and different steps for others, this wasn't the same process as my old phone and it left me a bit lost and quite stuck. The URL I put above gave me everything I needed to know that I didn't already have knowledge about.
