Pretty simple root method.

1. Download SuperOneClick found at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=803682

2. Once installed click rage option then Root.
The rage option is if you look on the right of SuperOneClick you will see Exploit and there you will see rageagainstthecage option there. This could be just an SuperOneClick 1.7 option. If you don't see it either upgrade or using just the root button should work.

If it is frozen at waiting for device you will need to install the samsung drivers found at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=728929

If all goes well you should be rooted. Pretty simple wasn't?

At this time ClockworkMod nor RecoveryManager work so please don't ask about them. When they get updated we will post it.

true, however that thread doesn't have the links needed to do the root in the OP, so actually this thread is better for those looking to root without the need to go searching throughout the thread.

also when i rooted my device there wasn't a "rage" option for me to choose. i just clicked on root and everything went fine.

I also don't know what this Rage option is. I did shell root for temp root and then perm root via the root button on SuperOneClick 1.6.5
