I had MS system center essentials, installed, I uninstalled that and then installed wsus 3.0. So I had to start from scratch anyways.
Im assuming as soon as you uninstall and reinstall it would be like starting from scratch, lose all settings.

That really bites the big one.

yeah....i ASSUME that i could retain the content (i.e. all the updates)...but i would imagine that it would not keep up with what's been approved etc...

Upgrade seamlessly from WSUS 2.0 to WSUS 3.0
WSUS 3.0 can be installed on a server that already has WSUS 2.0 installed. The installation process will perform an in-place upgrade that preserves all the previous settings and approvals. The process of upgrading a server hierarchy should start from the central server and continue down the hierarchy. A WSUS 2.0 server can synchronize from a WSUS 3.0 server, but a WSUS 3.0 server cannot synchronize from a WSUS 2.0 server. Upgrading from WSUS 2.0 to WSUS 3.0 is a one-way process; going back to WSUS 2.0 requires that you first remove WSUS 3.0, then reinstall WSUS 2.0.

I spent about an hour or so going back through and redoing the approvals. But the pie charts do help to show quickly which ones are needed or not. Im happy with 3.0. Also now I have it set up to send me nightly reports and a report if it synchronizes anything that night. So I can always be on top of what updates are being sync becuase if I remember correctly you and I are the same in not auto approving anything.
