    You can't really mess up too badly. Restore usually fixes anything. I've made too many mistakes to count regarding jailbreaking my iPhone so and in the end I always just put in DFU mode and restore. So, easiest way to jailbreak is to go to the dev-team's blog and download redsn0w (assuming you've already upgraded to 3.0 through iTunes) then run the program, follow the directions, and if done correctly, you're done. It's simple really. If you mess up and your phone is not responding, put into DFU mode and restore. Then rejailbreak again if necessary/desired. If you have any questions regarding anything I mentioned that you might need more specific directions on, feel free to message me/respond here and I'll gladly cover the topic for you.

    I took me about 3 hours to do and had to use redsnow 3 times but i did it!

    The only downside to it is that i lost all my apps
    But my contacts are intact along with some other things.

    Will upgrade my friends iphone sortly after this post.

    Thanks
