Default should i do it?

Im putting together my own pc, and i hear from my friends that partitioning and installing drivers and software is the biggest nuisance. i need some tips on partitioning and why it has to be done. My second concern is on installing the os. Im thinking bout installing the os that originally came with my laptop on to my new computer. should i do it or not?

Installing drivers is not really a hassle, the laptop OS cd, is it a official XP cd? Or is it like a certain company's system restore disk?
