The answer is - NO, if you would lke to see Windows Server 2003 instead Windows Server 2003 R2 text in About window.
But you can unistall components provided with R2.

>>You cannot uninstall Windows Server 2003 R2. The Windows Server 2003 R2 source files are permanent, but you will be able to uninstall any optional components that you install.
