If I had to name the top five reasons for rooting your phone, tethering would definitely be one of them. That said, now there is a way to tether your Vibrant without rooting. If you use an app called Samsung Kies, it works great over USB connection. I have not tried it myself, but following the directions from the video, I imagine you could tether any of the Galaxy S phones if not any Samsung Android phone.
