General Description: Trying to find out which specifc Xilinx software package is the correct one. When a search on a distributors page is done, several packages (either for Alliance or Foundation) are returned, with a cryptic prefix. What do these prefixes mean and which is the right one?? For example, AM-ALI-STD-PC or DS-ALI-STD-PC. What do the AM and DS stand for?
