Yes, but...

all those saved tasks and saved unix command templates - this would be a more complete hint if it included what to backup and later restore to retain those. That's what has kept me from doing this sort of thing sooner/more often.

wow, self-spank (see below for that)- Following this didn't quite go right on computer - I ended up doing a script as follows:
#this will uninstall ARD admin and all its components so you can reinstall 

rm -rf "/var/db/RemoteManagement"
rm "/Library/Preferences/"
rm "~/Library/Preferences/"
rm -r "/Library/Application Support/Apple/Remote Desktop/"
rm -r "~/Library/Application Support/Remote Desktop/"
rm -rf "/Applications/Remote"
rm -rf "/System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement"
rm -rf "/System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/"
rm -rf "/System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement"
rm -rf "/Library/Preferences/"
rm -rf "/Library/Preferences/"
rm -rf "/Library/Preferences/"
rm -rf "/Library/Receipts/RemoteDesktopAdmin320.pkg"
rm -rf "/Library/Receipts/RemoteDesktopAdmin322.pkg"
rm -rf "/Library/Receipts/RemoteDesktopClient.pkg"
rm -rf "/Library/Receipts/RemoteDesktopRMDB.pkg"
then reinstalled from CD and updated - And it worked WONDERS on the functioning of ARD - AND, my lists and saved unix scripts are still there. Not sure where they are stored, but it seems everything works better now and I might just do this on a regular basis. Thanks
