VS.NET 2005 Beta 2

Has anyone ordered the free Visual Studio .NET 2005 Beta 2 DVD? I ordered it from Microsoft free of charge. It arrived as 3 DVDs. I installed it, but it is the Team System version which is intended for teams. You have to install other components to get it to work which I couldn't even install because I didn't have certain server components installed. What I was actually looking for was the Professional version, not the Team System version. But it looks like that's the only one they distribute. And you can't download it unless you are an MSDN subscriber. But I saw on the web site ( that the Professional version is included in the Team System version. I checked but I couldn't find it. Any ideas?
