    Cydia and Installer are applications you can use to install other applications on your iPod/iPhone. I would only use Cydia, it's a lot more stable then Installer is currently.

    You may want to stick with "Graphic User" for now, you can always change it later by going to "Manage->Settings". What this does it hide certain applications from you, applications you won't need for faster searching and sorting.

    First things you will want to install through Cydia is "OpenSSH" and probably "WinterBoard" and "Categories".

    OpenSSH allows you to log into your iPod/iPhone from your PC (or Mac) using a program. WinSCP for Windows, and I forgot the name of the one for Mac.
    Here is a guide for OpenSSH... http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9978

    WinterBoard helps you theme your iPod/iPhone easier. Just install a theme through Cydia and enable it in WinterBoard.
    Here are two good guides for WinterBoard...

    Categories allows you to make categories and then you can put your applications into them.
    For Example: Make an "Apps" category and throw your Apps into it. Make a "Games" category and throw your game apps into it. And so on.
    I haven't seen a guide to use this, but it's pretty self-explanatory
