From MS by the way of e-mail

Windows XP Professional Release Candidate 2 (RC2) has been released. Microsoft is now in the
process of making RC2 available for download by Preview Program participants. Once download
hosting has been tested, secured, and made available, Windows XP Preview Program (WPP) customers
will receive e-mail notifications with download instructions. If you are receiving this e-mail,
you will receive your RC2 notification e-mail containing specific download instructions and
information.

What to expect: Customers who registered for the WPP prior to 7:00 p.m. on July 25 will begin
receiving RC2 notification e-mails from Conxion on Tuesday, July 31. Notifications will continue
in waves through the end of the week and will be processed according to the date you registered
for the program. Customers who registered for the WPP after 7:00 p.m. on July 25 will begin
receiving their notifications on or after August 3. Beginning August 6, we hope to process new
WPP orders within three business days.
