I read in the Lite manual to defrag the drive before installing Lite. Was that meant just for certain type of installations?

I did the analyze thing and it says the drive (C:) does not need defragmenting.

Should I defrag anyway? There are a few red lines among the blue and the green (Window XP).

Defragmentation is only needed if you want to install LITE next to XP as dual boot. You may need to shrink the XP partition to make room for LITE on your HDD and if there is a lot of fragmentation some data might get lost in the shrinking process.
Defrag your partition just in case. It can't hurt and if it's not that fragmented it should not take too long.
