Default installing win XP pro sp2, help please

Hi, i just recently built my computer. I just got it up and running today, and right now im installing windows 98 SE on it. but my friend burned me a copy of WinXP pro sp2, so i want to put that on it, but it would't let me load it, so im installing 98se first, then im going to install xp after i get 98se running. Is that okay to do? Also should i install all the hardware drivers first then install XP or should i install xp first then the drivers? I know this is probably a really stupid question, but i wanna make sure i do this right so i dont have to redo it.
any responses would be greatly appreciated.

I think the RIGHT way to do it would be to not used the burned version of XP, and to buy an upgrade version of XP. Wait let me stress the BUY part of that statement.

You will not receive any help here if you are using pirated software.
