Default Need help getting started - Sharepoint

I need to get familiar with Sharepoint Services and prep it for a training class I'll be conducting. I'd like to set it up on my stand-alone Win XP Pro OS. I do have IIS installed (and ASP) but I don't really use this computer as a server.

Should I just install the Windows Sharepoint Services 3.0 sofware?
Will that work on my Win XP PRO OS (again, just to experiment and prep... not for an actual deployment)

I do also use Visual Studio 2005 for some web site edits. (non sharepoint sites) Will this get messed up if I install Sharepoint -- and it "extends" something in IIS.... ? I thought I saw something about that in a forum post.

Any help greatly appreciated... thanks

Hi, I just joined and I see this post has aged. Nonetheless, here goes....
Have you considered using a virtual machine to test? You would only need to install the program on your host PC (VMWare server, MS Virtual PC/Server). Then, you could build a virtual test environment; your host OS would be isolated. Microsoft also offers evaluation virtual hard drives which you could mount in Virtual Server. Here's one for MOSS:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

I used WSS 3.0 within a virtual machine for initial end-user training. It was sufficient in providing experience with the basics of SharePoint: document libraries, lists, etc.

WSS 3.0 will give you experience with SP features and should be sufficient for training. If you use WSS for testing, you might want to research and bring to light the additional features MOSS would bring to the table. At least for the key stakeholders or the "powers that be"...

I don't know the answer to your Visual Studio question, but in utilzing the virtual machine, you shouldn't have a problem!

Hi... thanks for your reply. I got the training center to set me up with the virtual server... I can't say I understand it but they sent me home with a couple desktops (couldn't spare the laptops) and my living room looks like the bat cave.

I will start prepping tomorrow for the class... so hope all goes well. It is just end user training... The whole environment for Sharepoint should be set up for them back at their offices.

THANKS.... I appreciate your taking the time to share the info.

Val
