I want to add the above title to my library of knowledge and notice that there are two versions

1)Microsoft Windows 2003 Server Resource Kit: Special Promotion Edition (Paperback)
2)Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit (Paperback)

I also notice that the promotion edition is roughly $60 less than the non-promotion edition.  what I don't notice is what the difference is in the two.

does anyone kknow what the difference is in the two ither than cost??

The Resource Kit is a collect of 7 or 8 books.  Check the ISBN numbers - if they are different, post them here and I'll have a look.

There's no difference.

I think that interest isn't as high as they thought it would be so they created a promo SKU that is less money.

Agreed, but perhaps the promo ISBN is easy to track for sales than an actual sale with the original ISBN - ?

Sounds a little off to me also.  Rest assured it appears to be the same.

I wonder if you should call MS Press to find out for sure?
