ClockworkMod Recovery can be used to replace your device's recovery with something more useful. Specifically it can be used to make backups of and restore your current ROM and data, as well as install new ROMs. You can also use ROM Manager to manage which Clockwork is installed (you need one specifically for your device) and to easily boot into Clockwork and install ROMs.
