I don't understand what you're looking for - different builds? AFAIK, there's just the one from MS.
Different part numbers? There's the upgrade, the full version, and various OEM versions.

I was actually looking for different builds, i think there is more then one relase because i already have RTM and SR-1 but i think there is a new one out there, but then againmaybe i am mistaken

SP1 is the latest release, if you don't count the security patches & other minor updates:

Microsoft is working on SP2, but I have no idea when that will be released.

RTM -relese to manuf?- is build 2195. Thats it. Thats the only build of W2k there is that is "legal". There are alphas and betas that have different builds, but they're not the release version.
A service pack is a collection of hot fixes and addons/utilities for the OS. It has a build number too.
SP-1 is RTM build is 1.1 (?)
SP-2 is at rev 2.1 (late beta). Scheduled for release in probably Mayish, maybe a little earlier?
SP-3 is early Beta.
Whistler (XP)is late Beta. I think its beta builds are in the 2400's? That's going to be a very nice OS. It has such a nice feel. You can get a preview of those warm fuzzies with IE6 right now. (office xp is the same). Nice progression from w2k, but much different than 9X (think 3.1 - W95)
