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.
