A word of caution before installing the SharePoint 2010 Public Beta

I received an email from Bjørn Furuknap today, and was delighted with what it contained. So I do not steal his thunder, give a read (link below) BEFORE you go installing the beta to save you some hassle.

A reader of my blog, Arif, posted this morning in the comments, that it can definitely be done using local accounts – he was kind enough to share this link from the SharePoint From The Field Blog: http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/fromthefield/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=112 Thanks Arif!

    here is how to install SharePoint 2010 using local accountshttp://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/fromthefield/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=112So its not that bad as the blog post wants it to be. Done the installation many times now and I belive its easier than MOSS2007 setup due to the prerequisite works really nice
