Windows Server 2008 R2 Modify Existing Role

I can add a role, fine.  I can remove a role, fine.

How do I modify an existing role?

Say I add File Services role and just check the top box, File Server.  Finish.
Now I want add a sub-role, say, Distributed File Systems' DFS Replication.

How do I do this?

Expand Roles on the left hand side and choose the Role.

You then get an option in the main pane that says "Add Role Features"

Looks like that is it.  I'm actually seeing Add Role Services and Remove Role Services, but basically you are correct!!
