Root rooting the transform without SWUpdater is it possible?

ok good people heres the thing ...I got SWUpdater..I have vampirefos recovery....I have transform Ult Kernel Pack 3..now when I hook up the phone USB to PC (XP) it calls it the J drive & itsays insert disc in J drive..i cant see the sd card... but if i remove the sd card from the phone& load it on the PC its the F drive & it allows me to make the folders I need for the kernel & such.. ok now I put the sd card back into the phone it STILL doesnt see the card not in the J drive OR the F drive it still says insert disc for both .....ive de bugged ,mounted ,unmounted..the thing is CAN THE TRANSFORM B ROOTED WITHOUT SWUpdater OR SHOULD I JUST DEAL WITH THE RANDOM REBOOTS (by itself) & BATTERY PULLS(due to freezin up)
 
ps ..& the thing is I've tried damn near all the USB drivers in the androids link/ post he talks about..it says drivers ARE installed..i went ahead & gave it a shot but no luck it just hangs at the download screen, I waited to see if anything would happen but after 15/20 min..nothin...anybody have any suggestions, smartassed one & all ..so frustrated I could use a laff or better yet ROOT access ..thanx
