Go to the thread and look to see if there's a zip file you can just flash.

If they are major revisions (read the dev's OP post to find out) you would need to wipe and start fresh.

If they are just minor fixes? You can flash over the top of the existing ROM just fine. - But remember either way you should back up your data using your preferred method as even flashing over the top will most likely format the partitions in your phone when installing.

Um.. make sure you know what version Captivate you have - flash it back to stock using Odin 1-Click. You will get your market etc.. back to whatever your locale is.

If you flash back to stock using ODIN (which I have done a couple of times before flashing a new ROM) is that truely indifferent from when the phone was first purchased?

I was asking because I read today that Samsung might finally release an update for Froyo to the Samsung Captivate. Would this renable over the air (OTA) updates?

What you should do first is slow down. Read as much as you can here (go through the stickies in Captivate General and in the development area) and understand what rooting is, first, before you decide to install a custom ROM. People who do their research have successful custom ROM experiences.
