continuos rotation?

hello everyone im making a robot, and ive accidently bought my self non-continous servos. so i was on my way to convert them yo continous rotation and reading all the how-to's it says you need to use a servo controller to set the servo to the center position before beginning, but i do not have a servo controller. please tell me if i can just do this without setting it im just making a  small r/c or autonomous robot. if i need to can i just go ahead and skip that step do everything else and then wait for my arduino and motor shield to come in and then set it to center position?
