Deck boards

I'm sure this is a simple one for you DYI people. I have a parquet style (I think it's called) deck floor. Some boards are very splintered and need to be replaced. Is it as simple as pulling up the old boards, cutting a new one to the same length and screwing it down? Mine are nailed but I assume deck screws are better? Any tips I need to be aware of? The structure is still pretty solid, so I just want to replace the worst of the boards, stain it and get a few more years out of it before replacing the whole thing. Thanks.

Ya, that is pretty much it although I don't recall ever seeing a parquet pattern on a deck. If you want, post a pic or two and we can verify.
