I think the only way to get Media Center with Vista is to have Vista Home Premium or Ultimate. All other editions have upgrade options built into them so you can upgrade from Basic to either of the other editions for a fee. There are free alternatives to media center available on the net.

You won't be able to download the Media Center for Vista unless you upgrade to Ultimate (dunno about Enterprise tho'). You can also search the web for Media Center replacements that may work just as well for you.
