If its a genuine Windows CD it is clearly written on it which version it is.

What you will find is that the first disk in the R2 set is exactly the same as the original 2003 non-R2 disk. There is no difference whatsoever. The only difference comes when you talk about the second disk in the R2 set - if these have been burned too, then that disk is the critical one of Server 2003 R2.

To identify the second R2 disk, I would check to see the presence of the folder D:\CMPNENTS\R2\ADPREP. If that exists, it's an R2 (the second CD) media.
