It is word for word, but I just posted in case some one dediced to install it and didn't realise it was beta.

So far - so good, seems to work fine.

Does anybody know when the final is due. I'm getting this feeling that maybe MS will send it out with XP SP2 verrry soon. Probably way of the mark, but still...
