Default help with orange uk rooting

Evening one and all...
Am looking for some help with rooting my Orange UK HTC desire. Have tried many times to root the device but as the radio keeps gettin upgraded I keep gettin the network locked message once rebooted.
Can.someone please give me detailed instructions on how to root the device without upgrading the radio as I really don't have a clue. Have managed each time to downgrade the radio and flash back to generic rom, am however wanting to root the device.

Many thanks for any advice you can give me.
Danny ;)

You'll need to use a goldcard root an orange branded desire, without it, the flash will fail.

He must already have a goldcard if you look as he says he has already downgraded to a generic rom

Just look for a ROM that states 'no radio's in the title, that way it'll keep your current working radio.
