Find out your firmware and download CF-Root for your firmware from this thread.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1331253
Read all instructions on this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1133787

CF-Root does include CWM so you'll be able to flash any C-ROM. Again, read all instructions for the ROM/MOD/Kernel/etc that you want to flash.

If your device is unrooted and original stock, try updating to the latest version for your region using samsung kies.

Then you might find better links for latest versions.
=======
Else you can flash XXKPQ directly and then root it using CF-root for that version.
Note on guide thread says "Note: XXKPQ can only be flashed with help from it's supporting predecessor XXKPE like the XXKPN/XXKPH/XXKPM series, So make sure you have XXKPE downloaded. User flashing version varies with this, but this is my successful 100% assured boot." So, I guess you can flash XXKPQ directly on your XXKPN.

If you're on gingerbread, it's highly recommended that you use cf root kennel.
Use the universal Amit.bagaria kernel for gingerbread http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=19442301

you can find the detailed instructions there.
In simple words, power off your phone, enter into download mode by simultaneously pressing volume down, home and power button.
Then open Odin and in pda source select bagaria.tar
And unselect repartition option, select other 2 option (restart n other one).
Connect your phone via usb
Then see if Odin detects your phone, com port will turn yellow.
If it detects, press start and voila, you're done. It will restart the phone.
For your convenience, after auto restarting, Manual restart once again.

Press thanks if helped :)
