    Im looking to setup a local test server based on Windows Server 2003.

    I have the 180 day evaluation DVD, however as I'm looking at my certification training as a long term term thing I wouldn't think that 6 months would be enough time to get me through everything and wouldn't like to wipe and start from scratch after the trial has expired.

    I'm also not keen on paying the full retail price for the software either... So are there any other ways of legally procuring a copy?

    Action Pack should give you a copy to play with
    MSDN
    Technet Plus
    i'm not sure Technet plus comes with software, i'ts been a while since I got any
    Its a lot cheaper than MSDN though, I have MSDN Universal and its about 1k a year
    Action pack is a few hundred

    Yeah, definately worth it, you get 3 versions. You get the standard edition in 32bit and 64bit versions, and you get the web edition
