SQL Server 2008 SP1 not for XP?

P: 36
Hi

1) Question one
I'm installing SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Edition on Windowds XP (remotely) and in the 'readme' file it tells me to install SP1 first and then SQL Server 2008 but when I try to download the SP1 http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=66ab3dbb-bf3e-4f46-9559-ccc6a4f9dc19&displaylang=en

it says Supported Operating Systems: Windows 7; Windows Server 2003; Windows Server 2008; Windows Vista

Doesn't mention anything about XP should I install it? (if yes before or after installation)

2) Question two
I have Windows XP without any updates and I want to install SQL Server 2008 Enteprise what are the best ways of doing it? I ask because I updated XP to SP3 and all updates including .net 3.5 sp1 and I couldn't even start installation as it said it doesn't have .net 3.5 (I tried uninstallting, cleanup tools etc but the easiest seems to be re-installation of XP as there was nothing on it and I need it quickly)

3) Question 3
Before installing SQL Server I will isntall IIS (SSRS) is there a point to install IIS 7? (any known incompatibilities?)

Many thanks in advance
Emil
