I'm working on a self study book by Microsoft about SQL server 2008, not 2008R2. I can't seem to find the sample databases AdventureWorks2008*.msi, and AdventureWorksDW2008*.msi. All Microsoft has to offer is the R2 versions. Does anyone in the EE community have a good source for these files? Also, what does the "*" in the file name stand for? Is it a wild card meaning that the R2 databases would work as well, or is it referring to 32 vs. 64 bit? Please enlighten.

Thanks as always,
