C#
..NET framework 2.0 and/or .NET Framework2.0 SDK
Theoretically, with free downloaded SDK, you can do everything, if you do
not care your productivity (writing code on NotePad...)

With quite some money, you can buy VS2005 to boost your .NET develpment. if
you cannot afford it, VS2005 Express is free.

Could anyone guide me how I go about doing so, assuming that I will be
installing this on a new system.
Download .NET framework/SDK/VS2005 Express (or buy VS2005) and install it.

What all do I need to install and what are the latest versions
available.
Which is the best site on the web for downloading all the softwares.
www.microsoft.com
Are any trial versions available, and which is the best site.
VS2005 Express would be your best bet. Also #Develop is another well-known
free .NET IDE (Google is your friend to find it)

Any other guidelines or advices are welcome

In the .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package download
versions available are
x86, x64 and IA64

what do they refer to?
which is the latest version and which is the best for me to download?

also, I need to install IIS. how do I do that?

can I also download SQL Server Express to use as my backend?

one last question, how safe is it to work with these new versions? I
mean is it quite stable with fewer bugs? or do I install an older
version of .net for which most of the bug fixes may be available on the
net? could you pl advise

thanks

Most likely, you need to download x86 version, unless your brand new
computer has 64-bit CPU (majority of desktops/laptops are still 32-bit CPU,
but 64-bit CPU is emerging).

If you want to develop/test ASP.NET app, you'd better install IIS before
install .NET framework/SDK/VS2005.

Yes, you can install SQL Server2005 Express on the same computer, which
requires .NET framework2.0.

You can have multiple version of .NET framework installed on the same
computer (1.0, 1.1 and 2.0), if you want to run/develop/test .NET apps
targeting different version of .NET frameworks.

I am trying to load IIS into my system. I searched the site
microsoft.com. It gives lot of information and I am not able to find
out what I exactly want from it.

Is there a difference between Internet Information Server and Internet
Information Services?

If yes, which is the one I should download for running my asp.net
applications. Is there a free download available for this? pl help

thanks
