Create a script to copy .opt file from multiple servers to one location

Throughout our enterprise we have 400+ Windows 2003 and 2008 servers that use Tivoli® Storage Manager to backup files and directories.
Each server has an options file named dsm.opt  in the following location:
 C:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient\dsm.opt
I would like to create a script that would
1. Pull server name from server.txt file(our server names all have hyphens in the name
2. Copy dsm.opt file from the following path
     a. \\ServerName\c$\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient
3. Copy to Server or PC I am running Script from
     a. Create a folder with the server name and copy the .opt file to that folder.

I have zero scripting experience, any help would be appreciated.
Thanks - brewersewer

Something like this?
@echo off
setlocal
for /f %%a in ('type server.txt') do (
  if not exist "%~dp0%%a" md "%~dp0%%a"
  copy "\\%%a\C$\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient\dsm.opt" "%~dp0%%a\dsm.opt"
)
