Deploy a single server with SQL Server (SharePoint Foundation 2010) - provides end-to-end installation instructions for setting up SharePoint Foundation 2010 on a single server farm. This installation scenario is ideal for evaluating SharePoint Foundation 2010 functionality or for hosting a very small installation of SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Deploy a single server with a built-in database (SharePoint Foundation 2010) - provides end-to-end instructions for installing SharePoint Foundation 2010 on a single server with a built-in database. This configuration is useful if you want to evaluate SharePoint Foundation 2010 features and capabilities, such as collaboration, document management, and search. This configuration is also useful if you are deploying only a few Web sites and you want to minimize administrative overhead.

Roadmap to SharePoint Foundation 2010 content - summarizes the content and resources that are available on the Microsoft.com Web site that can help you understand and use SharePoint Foundation 2010 as you go beyond the basics that are presented in this guide.
