clean install question

I'm cleaning off my laptop, and installing everything from scratch (Windows XP, PS CS2...everything)

After having installed everything, should I format the drive? One person told me that I should, yet another person told me that it is counterproductive....since the files would "be layed out on the disk in an optimal manner".
Any expert advice on when I should format the drive?
Also, is there any particular order I should be installing everything?

Muchos gracias.
