    It doesn't matter much which one you do. Both methods overwrite the system partition (the part that needs to be acessed to jailbreak the device), but the difference is that restoring completely overwrites the /var partition (that contains the information that is specific to your iPod, whereas updating only moves things around and sets permissions and things, keeping your settings and other files (such as ROMS and PDFs) completely intact. But once you restore from a back up, all your settings will come straight back, so all you need to do is put your music, ROMs and so on back on yourself, then reinstall your applications when 2.0 versions become available.
