A Recovery disk simply restores the OS to a basic install or in many cases to the original manufacturers factory settings.
However, as you suggest,you can use the Vista install DVD to perform a "clean" installation.
This would probably be the better option.

Hi,
Most laptops come with a recovery CD that when you have a problem you can restore the it to the original state. That is, everything is wiped and whatever was supplied by the manufacturer will be reinstalled.
This is now not applicable to you. You have installed a new OS (Vista ultimate) and you have the installation disc.
That disc can be used to repair Vista if it gets damaged. Look at this site for information...

assuming that everything is OK for you at this time, you do not have to do anything. If Vista plays up, you can use your CD to repair or to do a clean install.
If you want to know anything about this sort of subject again just go to Google.com, type in what you want to know and you will get many sites to look at.

you bought a laptop with windows installed ,then you we and bought another copy of window and install it ,not using the orignal windows ,so the recovery cd you would make are of no use to you as you are not using that version any more ,so no you don't need to make the recovery disk ,unless you think you want to some day go back to the windows that was on the laptop when you bought it .
Edit : actually i don't think you would even be able to make the recovery's any more now that you installed a different Vista
