I already had the Superuser app before this but I did not have Superuser privileges. It was weird.

Then I went to that site and downloaded:
Eclair/Froyo/Gingerbread/Honeycomb (2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 3.0)
md5: a2844ac335a5c1cfdb9bea2fc041b415
su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip

Flashed in CWM, nothing.
There are actually a couple issues.

/system/bin/su is symlinked to /system/xbin/su which is also symlinked to /system/bin/su, so its a circular symlink. To fix you need to be savy in adb shell, rm the symlinks and cwm the su pkg

Hey man, thanks. Just tell me which files or folders I need to "rm". And I assume I need to flash the same CWM package that I have shown above? I can do all of this in adb no problem.
Rm the two symlinks and flash the su pkg thats it

Make sure /system is mounted when you do the flash via cwmr

Yes, they are files. Just run the following and it should hopefully solve it for you.
adb shell mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/stl10 /system
adb shell rm /system/bin/su
adb shell rm /system/xbin/su

After that, reboot and the kernel should root the phone, otherwise, try the su zip again in cwm.
Lol k so again I was being lazy here sorry didn't give enough detail
