I've been trying to research the best way to approach setting up a SharePoint 2010 farm...up to the steps where i have the basic config databases and CA created but am looking towards OWA, Service Apps and CU's

Kinda wondering what the best order would be for that...

Should I have all of my service apps created on the farm first then install OWA then the CU's?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Todd Klindt's recent post on SharePoint 2010 Install Guidance has been a most useful checklist.
