You can use ServerManagerCMD command to install roles/feature and PsExec to do it on remote servers from text file.

ServerManagerCMD explanation at
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc748918%28WS.10%29.aspx

How to use it
http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Windows-Server-2008-Servermanagerexe-CLI-tool-Add-Remove-Server-Roles.html

and link to PsExec

is this Windows Server 2008 not 2008 R2, right (because "Removable Storage Manager" feature is removed in R2 :) )

so, for R1 use on a server

ServerManagerCMD -install Removable-Storage

using PsExec from one of your server or workstation with RSAT installed

psexec @text_file_with_servers ServerManagerCMD -install Removable-Storage

where "text_file_with_servers" is a text file with servers names, one per line

All Roleas and Feature to install you will find on this blog

You need to use Removable-Storage feature's name in OS language :)

in case of syntax problem you can also try with

psexec @text_file_with_servers ServerManagerCMD "-install Removable-Storage"

where "Removable-Storage" is in OS language
