It depends on what HBOOT version you have. If you hold vol down+power when starting the phone you can enter HBOOT. You can navigate after it tries to load a file with the volume keys and select with the power button. There it will tell you your HBOOT version. If you have 0.92 or older, you can use unrevoked provided your radio version matches up.
If you have 1.02 or newer, you have to unlock the bootloader. Once the bootloader is unlocked, you don't need unrevoked. Just flash a recovery and superuser zip for root. Or once you flash recovery, you could just flash a custom ROM that has root.
