In the past I have downloaded and installed Sharepoint 2003 for free.  I am confused with the new 2010 versions of Sharepoint.  Is there still a free version that will allow me to install an intranet site like before?

Yes, the free version is now called SharePoint Foundation 2010:

http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/en-us/product/Related-Technologies/Pages/SharePoint-Foundation.aspx

You can download it here:

You can download Service Pack 1 for it here:

Please note that there is only a 64-bit version now, so you need to make sure you run it on a 64-bit server. In the past, there were both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

Here is a chart with the functionality available across versions:

I believe SharePoint Foundation 2010 is still no cost out side the Windows Server licensing.

As a follow-up to my first post, here is how to slip-stream Service Pack 1 into the install:
