I flash at least 5 times a week goofing with this darn phone.

Thanks , I'll do that from now on. I did finally get the ROM flashed. I was getting only partial file downloads, like 103 MB instead of 324MB or whatever the actual size was. I'm sure it had to do with the crappy internet connection I had been dealing with. But, that is fixed and I was able to download the radio file and the ROM to my laptop and copied it to an SD card and then put the SD card in the phone, recovery mode, flashed the files all is good. So, now to see how well this ROM works. So far, it seems great. I think the battery is being sucked up a little quick but, I have to give it more time.

It turns out that it was my internet connection. I got it straightened out, and also because of the lousy connection, the files I downloaded were only about a third of the actual size. Anyways, I was able to get the ROM installed, and so far it seems great. Thanks for the response.
Able to read and post using either my SGH-I897 Captivate (no longer AT&T) , or my SGH-T989 Galaxy S2 Hercules. Both rooted, sometimes stock, sometimes not. The two best phones to own. And always, thanks to everyone on this site.
