Visual Studio 2005 Beta

I downloaded it yesterday (yes, it took all day).  I've tried installing it twice and I get the following error (after about 30 minutes):
 
Error 1935. An error occurred during the installation of assembly 'Microsoft.VC80.MFCLOC,processorArchitecture="x86", publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b", version="8.00.0.0",type="win32"'.  Please refer to Help and Support for more information.  HRESULT: 0x80070091.

I went out to the VS 2005 site and looked at some posts and it looks like it might be happening because I have XP SP2 RC1 installed.  What a pain.  Guess I will uninstall SP2.  It did say that it would be fixed when SP2 is offically released.  But it didn't say when that would be.
