Downloading and installing trial Exchnage 2010

Hi - To get the server version - can I just download the trial version from Microsoft - its just a 120 trial - is this ok to down and install into the domain - and then once i get the licence i can just register the key into the trial software? Or do i have to wait and get the licence key and then put the key in during install - maybe even a different download than trial version - i can only see trial version download on Microsoft download site?

"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.
