Thanks for any and all help.

Yes, you have two approaches:
(1) Make an N2A card (these are also sold), which will sit in the micro-SD slot. When it boots up, you can pick between the open system in the SD card or the original B&N system. Instructions here.

(2) Do a manual noot of the kernel. This lets you install the Android market apps right on the B&N home screen. Instructions here. However, look in your system information ~ if its not 1.4.2, first upgrade the stock kernel, because upgrading the stock kernal removes the root, and the process has to be repeated (there's a way to prevent this for people who spend the $3 for the SQLite database manager).
