Can I slipstream SBS R1 into R2

I have a dell that came with Windows SBS Standard 2003 R2. I need to do a reinstall, but don't have the original disk, but have R1 disks. Of course the microsoft license algorithm is different so my license key doesn't work. Is there any way I can get the R2 files and slipstream them in and burn a pseudo R2 disk?

Dell should be able to ship you SBS 2003 R2 media if you bought the OS from them along with the server (which you certainly did if it was pre-installed).  They can't give you another license key, but media should be no problem.
