Both the MSDN and HOTKIT CDs are limited to 10 stations. Another possible
downside for some is that the software is Not For Release licensed and is
_not_ upgradable. BTW, you get W2K Professional, W2K Server and W2K Advanced
Server with the W2K Hotkit.

I think you'll be happy with the kit if you take advantage of the training.
Both the Scholars.com site as well as the training CD included with the kit
were very helpful to me.

My kit arrived within just days of ordering it. The W2K kit arrived last
year with the Beta 2 release, but I received full release NFR CDs within
days of the 2/17/2K official release. I also received all of the Beta and
I also took advantage of the offer of a HOTKIT for Office2K. Again, the
training was worth _every_ penny and I consider it a true value.
