Setting up Sharepoint

I am preparing for moving back into   SharePoint study and need to build some Virtual machines with SharePoint 2007 and 2010 to facilitate this.  I have had an amateur attempt at this a few months back and struggled due to lack of preparation. So this time I decided to start with a search for set up articles and this list is the result.
