I wonder if someone can advice me on these softwares on the HP installation CD for XP Pro SP2?
("Application and Driver Recovery DVD"):

  Recommended software applications:
HP ProtectTools Security Manager
HP Credential Manager for ProtectTools
HP BIOS Configuration for ProtectTools
LightScribe Host Software
HP Mobile Print Driver for Windows
Windows Media Connect

  Hardware Enabling Drivers:
HDA Modem Installer
HP Integrated module with Bluetooth wireless technology
Broadcom BCM440x 10-100 Ethernet Drivers - Windows XP
TI-PCI 6x12/7x12 Cardbus Driver
Synaptics Touchpad Driver
Video Drivers and utilities
WLAN Driver Installer
Intel Chipset Installation Utility for ICH7

  Optional Software Applications:
HP Backup & Recovery Pre-Load Module

All the above software from the HP CD I have NOT installed when I earlier have re-installed XP SP2. Just wonder if I might need anyone of them? For instance, I will buy a portable printer soon (Canon) so I might need to install the HP Mobile Print Driver for Windows?

For xp sp2 to work you just need the basic drivers of chipset, display and sound, rest of the softwares depend on the hardware your pc is installed with. As for example with your portable printer you will certainly get the driver cd with it as well and can be installed from the printer's driver cd.
