Default First time XP install tutorial

I' searched and I can't seem to find one. I just finished installing WIN XP and all my drivers and I would like to know is there any kind of setup process I should follow for a first time install like Partitioning, restore points, cleanup, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

um... if u already have XP installed then ur going to have trouble partitioning if u wanna make any other types like FAT or linux boots. u can use something like partitionMagic to create them. it costs 40 to buy.

u dont need to clean up since u just installed. defrag the drive just to have everything sorted. and XP creates its own restore points in case of crashes. uses 4GB on max restore.

and next time put this type of topic in the Windows section it should be there more than here.
