Can we install all roles in these server core machines. How do we install it. Is it the normal way of installing the OS.

Does server core come only in 2008?

No, the normal way would still be to install using the GUI. Only use server core if a) you are happy with using it and b) you want it for the reasons described above.

Thanks :-)
