Team Foundation Server 2008 installation

I have MSDN subscription. I want to create a fresh installation of Team Foundation Server 2008. That should create the application layer (web services that are exposed by TFS, sharepoint plugins, and the database.) I have got SQL 2008 installed in another server already.

I have got two sections in my question.

1. What version of TFS should I install. In MSDN there are many versions:

a. Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server Standard Edition (x86) - DVD (English)

b. Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server Workgroup Edition (x86) - DVD (English)

c. Visual Studio Team System 2008 Architecture Edition (x86) - DVD (English)

d. Visual Studio Team System 2008 Development Edition (x86) - DVD (English)

e. Visual Studio Team System 2008 Database Edition (x86) - DVD (English)

f. Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Suite (x86) - DVD (English)

etc.

Question is which version to choose from. I will not intend to install Visual Studio 2008 in the server (unless this is required to be installed)

2. If we install through Team Suit, will it include TFS server components?

Please guide me.

Since you got MSDN , why not go for Team suite 2010 ?
it is Way better than 2008 , been using TFS since 2005 & 2010 is the best so far.
