Default Easy questions that I don't know. please help

I am currently have Visual Studio.NET 2003 Enterprise Edition (.NET framework 1.1). Now I want to upgrade to Visual Studio.NET 2005 (.NET framework 2.0). Which product do I want to use? Look like Microsoft Don't have 2005 Enterprise Edition.

I am planning to use VB.NET 2005, C#, ASP.NET 2.0 (Web app).
Which product do I need to buy? the VS.NET 2005 Standard or Professional or ???

Professional is probably the best bet. Although it partially depends on how much database support you need. If you don't use many databases, you can probably get Standard with out missing much.

May I inject a fresh but related question?

Here we are using VS.Net Team Suite. I have absolutely no idea what things are different from the other VS versions. Are there differences?

The higher-priced packages contain source-control and other higher-level tools well beyond the basic tools for creating and debugging programs.
