This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You can root it with Universal Androot. Just search the Android Market for it (or scan the barcode below), install it, run it, follow the instructions. The advantages include upgrading/removing system apps, installing custom ROMs, and the like.
