Anyone now of a good tutorial for doing this? I had had a look here to see if I can find someone posting this before and I can't find it. I have like this dyslexia thing and I know that's a duff excuse but I was taking me forever and there was only 50-something posts. It's only mild dyslexia but really annoying.
Anyway, back to my request. Can anyone push me in the right direction please?

By Custom ROM do you mean Uruk Droid?
If so, this is the install guide: http://code.google.com/p/urukdroid/wiki/EasyInstall

So is this the best way to go? Are there other options?
I'll tell you the one thing which bugs me at the moment is that I cannot buy apps through the web browser because "this app is incompatible with Phone"
Has anyone figured out a way to fool the marketplace into thinking the 101 is a different tablet with the same specs so that I can only download apps which work.

I'm not overly confident. I messed about with Ubuntu etc on a PC but never done anything on a mobile device (except RockBox for the old iPod Video)
Can I get this beast back to factory settings if I mess things up?

Sounds like you might not need a custom ROM, depends what you're looking to do.
This is a good overview of root and custom ROM options: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=978492
and this talks about how to change how your device looks to the market (after you've rooted): http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=915332
