User Accounts after Erase & Install

This may be more of a general mac topic than a SuperDuper question...

My Mac Mini's been playing up recently, so I'm planning to Erase & re-Install Tiger. Everything's backed up with SuperDuper. After installation I'll want to selectively restore files for the four user accounts. I think I'll have a better chance of eliminating the problem if I don't restore everything at once.

In order for users to access files in the different accounts do I need to set up the user accounts exactly as they were before - same names, same short names, in the same order...I think I've read this somewhere?

Do I just drag the files from the backup to the appropriate location?

To restore the backed-up files should I be logged in as the user they belong to, or the root user, or can I do it all from an admin account?
