Is this a pre-R2 CAL and do I care?

We want to add some CALs to an OEM installed SBS 2003 R2 machine.  

This doesn't look like the right picture even for pre-R2 (wasn't pre-R2 also grey?).

But this will work with R2 anyway?  What's the older picture about?  Did they change from this to the grey envelope somewhere after 2003?

THanks!

Actually That is the newest picture.
And that will work with R2.
The Gray envelope is considered old

That's the right CAL pack if you are looking to get USER CALs (SKU T74-00002). Always make sure you use the Microsoft SKU to assure you are getting the right thing.  See http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/sbs/howtobuy/pricing.mspx for the list of current ones.

You can then search by that number to find the best price.
