[Q] Superuser help -- Samsung Vibrant

I'm at my wits end because after 6 hours of trying to make sure my Samsung Vibrant is rooted and that I can use Superuser Elite (which I've had for a while) I get conflicting information from the "Root Check Pro" which states I have root access and busybox installed. However, when I click on busybox it tells me I don't have root access to install it. Furthermore, my list of apps in Superuser is blank and there is no option to add apps to it.

I went to adroidsu.com for help with Superuser but it actually was no help as there were no instructions on how to use it, install it or troubleshoot it.

I'm running Froyo 2.2 (T-Mobile). My end desire is simply to update my ROM to 2.3 Gingerbread.

I have the premium version of ROM Manager installed but nothing happens when I click on "Reboot into Recovery". Same thing for "Backup Current ROM". It will prompt me if I want to reboot. When I click "Yes" nothing happens.

I attempted to use both the update.zip method (putting it on the internal SD card) and going into recovery mode at bootup to root the phone and also tried the latest version of SuperOneClick. Both 'SEEMED' to work but now I'm having my doubts.

I have no idea where to go next to resolve this. Help!
