WHAT IS THIS 0.0.1 VERSION THINGY ? I AM GOING TO HAVE TO PATCH FROM THE VERY FIRST VERSION OF WOW ???

PTRs use a zero as the first digit in their version to denote they are a PTR.

It's part of a system so you don't patch your live data with PTR data (since it checks if you already have a later version and 0 is always less then 3)

IE

0.0.1 = 3.0.1 PTR
0.1.0 = 3.1 PTR
0.2.0 = 3.2 PTR
0.3.0 = 3.3 PTR
0.3.3 = 3.3.3 PTR
0.3.5 = 3.3.5 PTR

So no It's not patching over your Live Data. As long as you keep the two installs seperate (ie the PTR gets installed into totally seperate folder from Live) you should be fine. When you install the PTR you make a second installation of World of Warcraft which has no connection to Live

Someone else must remove the cats. All have iPods." (http://community.livejournal.com/tec...t/2018070.html)
