    I've been trying for about 3 days already but to no avail. Apparently Microsoft is offering Windows Server 2003 evaluation kit available for download on their site. After registering and all that, Microsoft is supposed to send you the url to confirm your registration and download the file, but everytime I click on the link sent to my e-mail by Microsoft, it says that they can't find my order... Has this happened to you? Apart from finding it using P2P programs like Kazaa, are there other websites hosting it?

    it could be an MS passport problem..

    but why not order the eval kit mailed to you. it might take 6 weeks but at least you will get it..

    Thing about that is you have to pay the fees... Just wondering why it wouldn't download... If it could download all I have to do is burn the CD... No charge at all... :)

    after i read the post i tried the download registration and all.
    i wonder why it happened with you cos it gave me a working link on the first time (even with absolutly false info).

    i m not downloading it just because i will have to install it over my working XP install and i m never going to do that :)
