Best to put cm7 and gapps on initially. Its a pain to add later.

I would do it again it is so quick, format your SD card (fat32) then follow this threads easy instructions.

Also cm7.0.3 is out so you might as well use that if you didn't already. Get it here

I would use either 7.0.2 or 7.0.3, the latter was confirmed as stable early today and I understand has some fixes over 7.0.0

My plan is to switch entirely to rooting and forget about the NC system. I haven't used it since I started with CM7. I am waiting for the autonooter which will make it as simple to do as it was to create the SD card. This should be available within weeks probably.

You can just put the CM7.0.3 zip file in boot portion of your SD card and then flash it by pressing N and power together until the read words come on and then release after about 5 seconds. I find trying to time doing this a pain and if you haven't many apps to re download to me its easier to just start over.
