The files to download Visual Studio 2010 Beta are quite large. And downloading them can be a challenge. Brian Keller has written a blog post Using a download manager to quickly download Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 and produced a video on Channel 9, named 10-4 Episode 20: Downloading and Installing Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1, that shows you how to download and install Visual Studio 2010 Beta.
The posting describes use of Download Manager, a powerful, easy-to-use and absolutely free download accelerator and manager to download Visual Studio 2010 Beta.
The video takes you through downloading and installing Visual Studio 2010 Team Suite Beta 1 and Visual Studio 2010 Team Foundation Server Beta 1. This time-compressed video will take you through all of the key things you need to know to get up and running quickly with beta 1.
Once you are done installing, you can do a walkthrough with Jason Zander from his blog postings. He provides you two sessions, one for Visual Studio and the other for integration with Team Suite and Team Foundation Server.
