No. If you purchased Windows Server 2008 Standard that only covers the 1 server. The CAL's (Client Access License" only cover how many Use's or Devices that can connect to it. The CAL's tend to be somewhat lenient and operate more on the honor code. You may be able to install Server 2008 on the other machines but your licensing doesn't legally cover it.
