This is the kind of thing that is old news within 24 hours, but I thought I'd comment on it anyway. The link (if you haven't already found it) is:-

http://www.microsoft.com/office/preview/beta/getthebeta.mspx – SharePoint 2007 Portal and other office apps
Windows SharePoint Services v3
Windows SharePoint Services v3 en language pack

If you are installing SharePoint 2007 on a stand-alone DC server, you will also require http://download.microsoft.com/download/b/1/a/b1a6dceb-92a3-4808-8dac-b4e40c90ce00/StandaloneDCWorkaround.msi

But make sure you read

Please read this before installing Beta 2 by the SharePoint Team

To justify this posting a little, here are a couple of extra links that you should find useful and could well become frequenty visited places.

Microsoft – Office 2007 Developer Center
Microsoft – MSDN SharePoint Services Developer Center
Microsoft – Microsoft Sharepoint Community
Microsoft – eLearning Center for Office / SharePoint 2007
Microsoft – http://www.codeplex.com/ (Community development web site)

Joris Poelmans – Giant list of SharePoint 2007 resources and information

Microsoft – SharePoint Server 2007 SDK download
Microsoft – Windows SharePoint Services v3 download

Microsoft – SharePoint Server 2007 SDK documentation
Microsoft – Windows SharePoint Services v3 SDK documentation

Additionally, I was at a UK SharePoint User Group meeting on Monday just gone. If you're based in the UK and want to minimise the pain learning curve of taking up SharePoint 2007 this is an excellent group to join. Both talks on MOSS2007 by Nick Swan and Steve Smith were excellent, and future meetings should help us all circumvent the baptism of fire challenges developers and users faced back in the day when 2003 was launched. The support that Microsoft themselves are giving this community is also to be applauded. Get involved at http://suguk.org/.
