    I just installed my first rom. Before I did this I ran a Nandroid backup after rooting, then a Titanium backup. Now that I have the new rom instaled, should I run another backup of both? Will the previous ones be saved in case I ever want to use those from before the rom flash?

    Yeah, you should do a nandroid any time you want an image of your phone. That way you can play around all you want, and if things ever get wonky, or you just want to go back, you just restore that backup. There's no limit to the number of nandrod's aside from disk space.

    By default titanium only keeps a single backup of each app. You can change that in the settings if you want multiples. The important thing to remember is if you go between versions (say 2.1 & 2.2) you don't want to restore system apps, as they'll overwrite the proper versions.
