I read on a few different forums that flashing the new mod could take as long as 5-10 minutes but probably shouldn't last more than 20 minutes max.
Is there a step I have missed? Or is this kind of like rooting the phone where if it doesn't work the first (or second, or third) time you just try again?
Thanks in advance for any help any of you can offer.

I then made sure that the CM7.1.0-RC1 update ZIP and the Google Apps bundle were in the root of my SD card, copying them over from my laptop. I then brought up the ROM Manager app, and selected "Reboot into Recovery". It took a little under 20 seconds for the CM Recovery console to come up.
First I chose "backup and restore" and made sure I had a current copy of everything on SD. Then I chose "install zip from sdcard" and flashed both the CM7-RC1 ROM ZIP and Google Apps bundle up in the same console session, and rebooted.
I hope this helps.
P.S. The normal phone "Recovery Mode" which I think you'd got into actually puts an Android HTC Legend phone into a state where you can hook it up to your machine and run a limited number of commands from adb, such as adb push, and is used in the script below to push up a small recovery filesystem in the directory files/ to the phone, and run it:
recovery-mac.sh: echo Legend Recovery Mode echo echo Pushing required files to device... echo sudo ./adb-mac push files / sudo ./adb-mac shell busybox --install /sbin echo sudo ./adb-mac shell nohup /sbin/recovery &
Both the script above and the files/ directory I mention comes from a ZIP file on the CM wiki, and contained these files:
files |-- etc | |-- fstab | `-- mtab |-- sbin | |-- adbd | |-- backuptool.sh | |-- busybox | |-- dump_image | |-- e2fsck | |-- fix_permissions | |-- flash_image | |-- fs | |-- log2sd | |-- mke2fs | |-- mkyaffs2image | |-- nandroid-mobile.sh | |-- parted | |-- reboot | |-- recovery | |-- sdparted | |-- toolbox | |-- tune2fs | |-- um | |-- ums_toggle | |-- unyaffs | `-- wipe `-- system |-- bin | |-- linker | `-- sh `-- lib |-- libc.so |-- libcutils.so |-- liblog.so |-- libm.so `-- libstdc++.so

When I reinstalled Clockwork it looks like it put me into recovery mode. It gave me a couple options and this is what I did [I am definitely not a programer and probably shouldn't be attempting to root my phone so feel free to comment on my stupidity :-) ]
First I backed everything up. Then wiped the cache. I then had it install Cyanogen 7 and the google apps from the SD card. I did NOT tell it to wipe and restore factory settings. I have a feeling I should have done this first.
I feel like I should ask what to do next before screwing up even further. My guess is that I should pull the battery and try to start in recovery mode, but again, I really have no clue what I am doing.
Any help is very much appreciated.

Once that is done, you can wipe the /system partition (under mounts and storage in the recovery), and then perform the Factory Reset/Data Wipe. Once those are done, reinstall CM and gapps and then restore your apps back.

I somehow figured it out last night and got the phone rooted. I was able to get the clockwork recovery mod booted up using the [Power Button + X button]. Once it started in recovery mode I was able to have it wipe the cache restore to factory settings. For some reason it only gave me about a 3s window to get this done and then the phone would restart. It took 3 more battery pulls until I was able to get scrolled to the right option and hit yes.
Anyway, I am finally flashed to CM-7.1!
Thank you all for your help.
