I'm an MCP in all the Windows NT 4.0 certifications, and I'm looking to
become an MCSA in Windows 2000. I need an eval copy of Windows 2000
Server, or Windows 2000 Advanced Server. Is there anywhere to download
eval copies without having to buy additional exam books? Thanks.

I've looked on their site for trialware and the Windows 2000 section, I
wasn't able to find it. Can you give the URL please? Thanks!

You can get Windows 2003 trialware. For the most part, Windows 2003 is a
superset of Windows 2000 and you should be able to pass 2000-era exam by
using Server 2003. Otherwise, MCSE 2000-era books with associated trialware
should be in the bargain bin at book stores by now. Any particular reasons
for not going for the 2003 track?

Here is why you can't find the 2000 trialware anymore:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000...n/availability

Mainstream support has ended on June 30, 2005. My ability to sell this
product ends on November 1, 2005.

I recommend getting the 2003 trialware instead.

I have non-MS Win2K books laying around. Also, people seem to be still
moving to Windows 2000, not much Windows 2003 yet.

IMHO, I agree with Waylon and Leonid here. If you're after the
certification, then you'll find that the Windows 2000 certs are even
being phased out for the Windows 2003 certs. If, however, you still
want the evaluation copy, my recommendation is to go to MSPress or even
Amazon.com and look for any books on Windows 2000 Server that include
the evaluation copy.

The 29.99 that you'll pay (USD) will go a long ways towards helping you
with the certification (since you'll have a book to help guide you, as
well as the CD).

I am sorry, but new deployments all go to Windows 2003. If you were to apply
for one of my openings and had either MCSE2000 or MCSE2003, I'd view them as
equal in merit. As a System Builder OEM my ability to sell you a Windows
2000 server ends this November. Direct OEMs such as Dell ended this
product's availability as of last November. Any business would be extremely
foolish to move to the product that just had its mainstream support end.
Everything that you'll learn in Windows 2003 is directly applicable to
Windows 2000. Learn on the 2003 platform, but take a 2000 test if you so
desire, and you'll probably pass. Your current books are not a waste. If you
dig into beyond the skin of Windows 2003, you'll find that not much has
changed, except that things got fixed and made easier to use. Read them and
then update yourself on what's new in 2003. By the way, if you pass your
MCSA before end of August, you get access to an elibrary of current MS Press
titles, if you participate in the MS promotion on the subject.

Good luck,
