Order to install drivers in eee pc 1005hab

I have an eee pc asus 1005hab netbook. I have had to replace the hard drive and so I am currently installing a new copy of xp. I have downloaded all the drivers from and will start installing those when the operating system in completely installed.

I was wondering if anybody had thoughts on the order in which the drivers should be installed. I would also like to know what is not necessary and which optional programs I should install.

I have been to the asus site but they had no suggestions that I could find.

Thank you.......

Here's the order HP used for XP. It's a good order to do such things in.
