John, Winterboard requires a current version of mobile substrate in order to run- this might be why your phone is hanging. You should be able to reboot and restore your phone the same way you did last time.
Most of the these Cydia packages come with descriptions, which will tell you of any requirements they have. I would be careful to read those before installing.
I should mention, your phone's not broken. It just can't load the Springboard, which is why it's stuck at the Apple logo. Again, you shouldn't get too worried. Lots of people get stuck like this their first time jailbreaking. Just know that when you do this, your iPhone becomes more like a computer and less like a phone, so you're going to run into the same issues as when updating software on a PC. Once you know your way around better, you'll do better with subsequent jailbreaks.

I think one of the first things I did when I got my Omnia phone was download hacked ROMS to get things working the way I wanted. As you say, big deal, it's just software.
