The freedisk utility is missing on a new windows 2008 R2 Installation.  Is there a feature or role I need to enable to get this utility?

Nope, freedisk is unfortuantely no longer available in Windows. If you still wish to use it, copy it from 2003 server from
%WINDIR%\SYSTEM32\freedisk.exe and put into Windows Server 2008 %WINDIR%\SYSTEM32

it still works but it's not officially supported

Krzysztof
