Experiance of installing SQL server 2008 Express and Evaluation edition

I would like to share my experiance of installing SQL server 2008 Express and Evaluation edition.
To day I installed the Sql Server 2008 express and Sql Server 2008 Evaluation edition on Windsows XP.
The following steps are must for installing SQL Server 2008.
1- Windows XP SP2 and SP 32- Step 1: Download and install Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 SP1.
Step 2 Download and install Windows Installer 4.5.
.Step 3 Download and install Windows PowerShell 1.0.
Then downloaded The sample database Adventure works. Business Intelligence Studio, Sql Server management Studio 2008 works ok. I also created a AnalysisServices project.

I would like to emphasie that Windows XP SP2 and SP 3 are must before installing the SQL Server 2008 and sample database. I learned this lesson in my previous attempt when I forgot the Windows XP SP2 and SP 3 and faced difficulties in installing Sql Server 2008 and Sample databases.
