    The first process installs fastboot and the bootloader Toshiba removed. It will also install Clockworkmod that it used to flash/load/install ROM images. The second link contains the rooted ROM image that matches your build.

    Rooting a device is the process to obtain control of the entire system. Root is a Unix/Linux term for the level of highest control of the system. Flashing pushes/copies an entire operating system into the memory. In this case, a rooted and optimized image of the ROM/operating system/installed software, etc.
