Details

http://www.microsoft.com/Silverlight/ offers to download version 2.0b of the plugin.

All versions of Camino (1.6.1 and nightly builds of Camino 2.0) and Minefield builds redirect to
http://www.microsoft.com/Silverlight/resources/install.aspx?v=2.0#sysreq
without a link to download the plugin.
This also applies to WebKit nightly builds and Opera 9.5b.

Safari 3.1.1, Firefox 2 and Firefox 3rc2 go the download location.

----
Once the plugin is successfully installed, http://www.microsoft.com/Silverlight/ still fails to detect the presence of the Silverlight plugin.

"Silverlight home page

So you can still download.. I think the warning doesn't matter much.
