Sharepoint Server

I already have Window Server 2008 R2 and I now want to use Sharepoint and add sharepoint website in the server. Which sharepoint version I should use? and How can I install into existing Window Server 2008?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To determine what you need to install - you firt have to assess your needs.
What do you want to do with sharepoint?

Here is a link with features comparison for versions of Sharepoint 2010- although you can also install WSS and SharePoint 2007, i would advise you go for the new versions.

The foundation version is free

Heres a comparison between WSS and MOSS(sharepoint 2007) if you interested.
