    Since after the 3g upgrade os 3.0, i haven't been able to backup, the backup i'm using to restore my new 3gs is with os 2.2. Is this going to screw something up in my new 3gs? or will it only restore apps and data and not roll my 3gs to the older os?

    It won't hurt anything. You can choose whatever backup you want. It won't affect what OS you are using.
