Windows Server 2008 Eval ISO Downloads & WSS

Need some test bits for Server 2008? Don't have a TechNet Plus subscription?

Microsoft has pleasantly surprised us with a pair of ISO files for download, x86 and x64, with a 60 day evaluation period in Server 2008's various editions! Keep in mind that the files are quite large.

Here are the links to the download pages:
Planning on deploying Windows SharePoint Services Version 3 on IIS 7? Then the WSS download is separate:
There are some good instructions for installing WSS on Server 2008 too:
It looks as though one will not be able to install WSS on a Core install of Server 2008 at this time due to the lack of ASP.NET support.

Best work with Server 2008 soon, as SBS 2008 is just around the corner.

UPDATE: Added the link to the Datacenter edition of Server 2008 that was missed in the initial post.
