I've deployed computer certs using Win 2008 enterprise edition, but now i need to do the same thing using Win 2008  std server.

What do I need to do different for the std server? enterprise edt worked like a charm

You can use MMC to request a computer certificate if the CA is an enterprise CA.
In 2008, you cannot use web enrollment to enroll the computer certificate.
Other option for you to use is Automatic Certificate Request Settings (ACRS) which is kind of autoenrollment for Version 1 computer certificate. Read http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc785279(WS.10).aspx for more details.
Also the Version 2 templates cannot be used in standard OS (until 2008 R2).

we have R2 server
And we need to enroll V2 templates

But is there a way to enroll certs using GPO's, without user interventio?

Turns out it was a 2003 standard edition server - so it worked like a charm ---

Thanks !
Cool, standard edition works similarly on 2003/2008/2008 R2, except 2008 R2 has several benefits like Version 2 templates are available.
