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.
Setting up SharePoint 2010
Setting Up a SharePoint Developer Virtual Machine found via @Sharepointtalk – Movie on setting up 180 day eval VHD

Setting Up Your Sharepoint 2010 Development Environment – more of an overview
Setting Up a SharePoint 2010 Development Environment – lots of detailed steps, I’ll be printing this one out as a reference
Step by Step SharePoint 2010 Install RTM – truly massively detailed – another one for the shortlist to have on hand
I’ll be printing/bookmarking/pdf all three of these:
