Errata: This book is new enough so that it should not use Windows XP .NET in the version names of any version of Windows XP. It should instead use Windows Server 2003. Correction: Change "Windows XP Home" to "Windows XP Home Edition" Change "Windows XP Professional" to "Windows XP Professional Edition*" Change "Windows XP .NET Standard Server" to "Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition*" Change "Windows .NET Enterprise Server" to "Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition*" Change "Windows .NET Datacenter Server" to "Windows Server 2003 Datacenter Edition*" Change "Windows XP 64-bit*" to "Windows Server 2003 Web Edition" Note that asterisks now appear next to four items (and has been removed from XP 64-bit), and that the footnote should now read: "64-bit versions of these editions are also available. For more information, including applicable upgrade offers, see http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/64bit/."
