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?

prefixes are the same for Foundation and Alliance.
