    I think it is safer to assume that installing the oldest product first
    is the better way since MS would have thought about checking for
    previous version when installing a newer product.

    Yes. You should be OK just installing VS 2008 on your current setup (with
    VC6 and VS 2003 already installed). VS 2008 is a separate product.
