I've searched on here but can not find an answer for my particluar error.

From Rom Manager I select Install ROM from CD card. When it boots up I get the red exclaimation mark. Then i press volume up and power.

The first thing i see is android recovery with E: can't open cache/recovery/command

According to ROM manager I have ClockwordMod Recovery

ever seen this? any way around it?

Try flashing recovery again via ROM manager. For some users flashing it just once doesn't work.

Do you have ENG S-OFF? If so you could try via fastboot.
