4 56 Text correction: "Note"
In the "NOTE" on page 56 under "Choosing a Windows Server 2008 Edition," references to "cores" should be read as "sockets."

In its entirety, the NOTE should read:
"When Micrrosoft talks about processors, it means processors that Windows can recognize. If your system uses dual-socket processors, each socket counts as a processor. Consequently, when working with Standard Edition, you can install up to four single-socket processors or two dual-socket processors. If you're lucky enough to have a quad-socket Zeon processor, you can install only one processor when working with Standard Edition."
