in recovery, download the superuser 3.0.7, extract it, then
adb push Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed/system /system
adb shell chmod 6755 /system/bin/su

No, it isn't magic and it isn't hard...

home, volume up, and power
I knew it, thank you, was doing that as I typed this.

Edit: Still nothing, I saw a quick blue text like it was going into recovery, but then nothing.

Edit 2: I remembered you basically have to let it go at that point. All is good in my hood.

See, did that, and it didn't boot into recovery for me, but odin said all went well, so i was confused.
On the et4g it was volume up and power..
Find an application in the market that will reboot to recovery.
There are a bunch.
Rom Manager
Rom tool box
Absolute system root
You can also adb recovery as well..

Can I flash superuser zip from recovery?
I can't get adb working from recovery... What am I doing wrong?

EDIT:

I installed Samsung USB drivers, but the phone isn't recognized as an adb device while in recover,,,
