comment Is it possible to redirect (or create an alias) so that requests for a default instance of SQL redirect to a named instance?
@jscott: AFAIK the port is always (by default) set to 1433 anyway so that won't make a difference. Also i just checked sql config and even my (non-running) sqlexpress instance uses 1433.

comment Compatability error Installing Sharepoint w/ SP1 on Windows 2008 R2 RC
See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slipstream_(computing) for info on slipstreaming. If you want to install WSS then you can use the link on the Microsoft blog. If you want to install MOSS you will have to make a slipstream because "So far there is no plan to create a MOSS slipstream build." MS also has a guide on slipstreraming MOSS technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc261890.aspx
