I would agree with msguru...

The best way to learn is to buy a couple of books and then build a test environment yourself. Then you can install the OS, configure terminal services, install citrix and its datastore (SQL db) and then publish apps to users.

You can install most of the components on one server for evaluation purposes or you could use vmware...

Good luck - any problems let us know!

Another good link is this one from DABCC.. he is a well know citrix expert who wrote MIAB as a guide on how to build a good citrix environment....

http://www.dabcc.com/miab/miab30/Implementation-Phase-1.-Implementation-Phase-Overview-MIAB-3.aspx

The above version of MIAB is for Metaframe XP though...

He is still working on a guide for the current version....

Just in case you are confused...
The citrix offering has had a few name changes in past years....

Metaframe XP 1.0
Presentation Server 3.0
Presentation Server 4.0
Presentation Server 4.5 <current version>

Cheers
