Question XP Pro on New Rig - Install or Image?

Just wondering if people think I'm better off to put a fresh install of XP Pro and SP2 or prune and clean up my current C: drive and image it onto my new Sata Barracuda 7200.11. What do you think? Thanks in advance everyone. Burning copies of UBCD & UBCD4Win right now, just in case.

I would make a fresh and shiny install. After all updates, drivers and essential programs are loaded make an image to be used next time.

It took me several tries to get things right, but I finally got XP Pro 32 installed. Just in time for XP Pro 64 bit to show up at my door step. Here we go again!
