The site is legit - plenty of references on Microsoft's site, and the
procedures match.
One example of many:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/evaluation/trial/virtualserver.ms
px

But the email might or might not be legit. If your email was plain text, it
is probably legit. If it was HTML, you would need to check to see if the
www.betaplace.com hyperlink actually pointed to the real site or to some
Passport phisher's site. Same goes for the wincdup at microsoft.com contact.
