I flashed the GR-12 rom for my captivate, and first reboot is taking FOREVER. Not just that ROM either. Every ROM I try will sit in the first scree for Re-boot for 30+ minutes, and not do ANYTHING. I end up just re-flashing to stock using Odin and trying again just to get the same result... Help?

it usually takes ~2-3 minutes on 2.2 and 2.3.3 roms after wipe flash... never took more than that

Mine took longer for the GB ROMs than FroYo, like 5 minutes or so.

If I were you I would delete all the files you are using and re-download a fresh copy of the stock GB. Then I would forget what steps you are using to install, and re-read all the instructions to make sure you didn't skip something.

After reading that it sounds condescending ... I don't mean it to be. My point is to start fresh. I don't know how many times my assumptions that I was doing it right caused needless repetition of the wrong process.
