If you're as confused about what's going on with SQL 2005 SP2 and the various post SP2 hotfixes as I am, Bob Ward from PSS has a very detailed explanation of the various permutations here. Hopefully this will help clear up much of the confusion!

The SQL 2005 Virtual labs, available for free on MSDN, are a great resource for learning about SQL Server 2005. Whilst everyone pretty much has a copy of SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition or Express Edition to learn on, not everyone has the time or resource to setup VM's with Office Server products to delve deeper into the BI capabilities of SQL Server 2005. With the virtual labs, everything is setup and ready to go, taking all the hassle out of setting up test environments.
