I just stumbled upon the most thorough treatment on how to propagate roses from cuttings that I have ever seen. Mel Hulse [was once] curator for the San Jose Heritage Rose Garden, a garden with many thousands of rather rare and endangered rose cultivars posted it at Paul Barden's site:

I had forgotten that I wanted to comment on this thread when you first posted.
Mel Hulse passed away back in Jan. 2008. Here is the announcement on GardenWeb which gives you a little background of his contributions to one of the largest rose collections in the world, a couple of pictures are included as well.

I've used this method many times, with far, far, more success than any other. I'm sold on it!

Thanks for popping this back up again Alan, I think I am going to try my hand at some this week using his method.
