To answer some current and prior questions...

1) Yes, you can promote your pawn to anything at any time, no matter what pieces are still on the board. Conventional wisdom says you promote to a queen, which I always do. Promoting to a knight can be fun, but promotions often happen in the end-game, and if any of you know an easy way to check-mate an opponent with just a knight and king, my hats off to you!

2) You are still allowed to castle even if your king was once in check, as long as it is not in check, and would not be in check passing to the new square.
