Where can you view license information

I have Windows Server 2008 and as I understand it you no longer "install" cals, you just buy them and choose per seat or per server during the install. Is that correct? And is there a way in Windows to see which way it was installed? I can't seem to find any.

    you can type slmgr.vbs at the command prompt which will pop with the differnt switches to obtain or check the licens information.

    you can otherwise type   slmgr.vbs -dli for the license summary at the command prompt

    or type slmgr.vbs -dlv for detailed information.
