Upgrade Server 2003 to R2 for print management

I need to run Print Management on my print server, but it's currently running Server 2003 Standard.  Is there a way to install this now on Std edition without upgrading to R2?  If not, anything I should be wary of in considering whether to upgrade?

The upgrade procedure is simple - simply insert Disk 2 of the Server 2003 R2 media and follow the steps for installation. In Server 2003 R2 media, Disk 1 is a generic Server 2003 install disk, Disk 2 contains the R2 specific components. You can upgrade any R1 server to R2 at any time.

If the server you upgrade is a DC, and you don't have any other R2 DCs on the network, you'll need to run ADPrep /forestprep and ADPrep /domainprep from the \SOURCES\ADPREP on Disk 2 to add the R2-specific schema attributes.
