I've had to put this off for far too long, but it is finally complete: How To Build A Team Foundation Virtual Server!
Free registration is required to access the site. The site's been active 18 months and I've sent out two mass emails. In the future, I plan a newsletter - not sure of the frequency or content.
This tutorial on building your own Team Foundation Virtual Server starts with building a virtual machine in Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, and ends with testing the installation by building a Team Project.
All the software is available free from Microsoft - either completely free (as in beer) or in 180-day trial versions.
I've used these very setup instructions to build Production TFS servers. I've also converted the 180-day trial versions to fully-licensed versions. In Team Foundation Server, this is pretty simple: after you obtain your license key simply open Add/Remove Programs, select Microsoft Team Foundation Server, and click the Change button. One of the Team Foundation Server setup options is Upgrade - how cool is that?
My next project is similar - I'll be building a new Team Foundation Virtual Server for a pre-release version of TFS Orcas!
