I want to install CyanogenMod on my Samsung Galaxy S. In order to do that it needs to be rooted first of course. For that I followed the the explanation on the CyanogenMod wiki to the letter.
However, when I execute
heimdall flash --kernel zImage in the command prompt I get the following feedback:

I'm unable to find any information about this error :-(.
Type: Samsung Galaxy GT-I9000
Kernel: 188.8.131.52-I9000XWJVH-CL184813 OS: Windows Vista
Alternatively: where can I find a clear, non-confusing, guide on how to root a Samsung Galaxy S? There seem to be hundreds out there but so far I didn't find any that worked for me with working links and clear explanation.
