Default CD-ROM Differences

I have both the SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Starter Kit and the Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition Starter Kit. They are a marvelous way to get acquainted with the new versions without having to purchase the full Visual Studio package. Eventually I plan to purchase the full package - but for now ....

One slight problem:

The two CD-ROMs appear almost identical except for a very small part number on the bottom. Which one is associated with which book? Can they be used interchangeably?

They are about the same they both contain the install for SQL server express and Visual Basic express. Once you have one the other is (relatively) unnecessary.

Hope you are enjoying the book I am so far.

I tried to install the downloads of the [SP1] versions of the VB and SQL Server Express Editions. It hasn't worked since.
