    Can anyone give me a shortcut on upgrading my old MCSD certification to
    MCSD.NET what exams etc and give me some idea on the practicality of doing
    this.

    It may make sense to hang fire for 2008 stuff to come through even, so any
    clues on best timing for all this would be handy.

    Looks like ultimately MCPD and MCA is the real route, but unclear how
    realistic all this is at the mo.

    Not asking for much here :)

    There is no shortcut from MCSD to MCSD .Net.
    You have to take all the exams:
    70-300, 70-305 or 70-315, 70-306 or 70-316, 70-310 or 70-320, and an elective.
    However, you can use the 70-431 as your MCSD .Net elective, which will also
    give you a MCTS: SQL Server 2005.
    Only get your MCSD .Net if you are currently using Visual Studio 2002 or 2003.
    If you are using Visual Studio 2005, then go for the MCTS/MCPD route.
    Details, of course, are at www.microsoft.com/learning.
    Best wishes in your certification studies.
