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?

CERTExpertCommented:
Autoenrollment does not work on standard edition, so the only option for you to use a V1 template like Computer and configure the ACRS Policy as specified in the link provided previously.

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