Android root and fresh install

I have a Sprint Epic 4G phone that came with Android 2.2

I just used OneClickRootExploit to gain access to root on my phone.  I installed Titanium Backup, which requires root access on the device, and it works.  So I have verified that I do have root access.

So I guess the next step is to somehow wipe the phone and install a clean install of Android 2.2 so I can get rid of all the crap that Sprint has built into it.  Can anyone guide me in this process?

Thanks

The guys at XDA are awesome.

Here is a link to their Epic 4G mod community. Lots of Roms to choose from.

Yeah, I've been browsing around xda-developers.com and I'm not really sure what I should be looking for.
I just want a basic install, nothing fancy.

I'm also not quite sure I know how to install one of these ROMS.

Can you give me some additional guidance here?
