Alternatives to downloading a trial version of SAP IDES ERP software

A user learning SAP FI is looking for a trial version of SAP IDES ERP ECC 6.0 software.

I am learning SAP FI and wish to install a trial version of SAP's IDES (Internet Demonstration and Evaluation System)...

ERP ECC 6.0 on Windows XP for practice purposes. Where can I get a trial version of this software as well as instructions on how to install it?

I believe that IDES is only available for licensed customers. However, there are alternatives.

The SAP book ABAP Objects: ABAP Programming in SAP NetWeaver (SAP Press) comes with a web application server. Unfortunately, it does not contain a lot of example data, as does IDES.

There are some companies that offer IDES access via the Internet. A Google search should allow you to find them. They offer access to IDES systems, according to SAP release and functionality, via monthly or quarterly subscriptions.
