You can save a DVD Image or self-extracting executables for the following:
For XP Professional you need SP3 in the download page. Note that the Hardware & Software requirements for x86 still needing XP SP2

Some notes from release notes(I insist you read this):
* You can upgrade from Feb 2008 CTP and not Nov 2007 CTP
For Nov 2007: Upgrade to Feb 2008 CTP before installing the RC0

* Do not use ADD/ Remove Programs to make change sto features but use the
Installation Center Page provided during installation and which can be accessed
from the short-cut

* Stop and restart WMI Service on the computer if you are using the previous CTP
