For Virtex-II pro development, you need EDK (embedded development kit).
Virtex-II pro developer's kit (a.k.a VDK) is included in EDK.
System generator for PowerPC beta version is also included in EDK.
EDK5.1 also includes ISE 5.1 evaluation version.
To run EDK, you need to have ISE5.1.

Thus, you need EDK and ISE for Virtex-II pro development.

I hope this answer clears your doube a little.

i just found out that system generator for powerpc is included with the EDK cd but it doesn't install by default. I tried to install it and it asked me for a password since it is a beta release.
Has EDK 3.2 been released. because there is mention of it in the answer browser section of xilinx website.

it depends on U if Ur going to design digital systems only then Xilinx ISE is enough or if U want to design embedded systems then u require EDK along with ise. similarly for dsp implementations U have to install xilinx system generator
