I have Win 2008 R2 Standard installed and I bought Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services 5 Pack (User) I just received it in the mail and it says Windows Server 2008. No R2. Does this matter?
I don't want to break the seal if it is not compatible. Guess my question is does it matter that it says Windows Server 2008 and not a R2 at the end?
I am new at managing Windows Servers.

Does not matter. Even if somehow you purchased a 2008 TS CAL (the version before R2 RDS CAL was released) you would be able to use it for Server 2008 TS or Server 2008 R2 RDSH. If the description on the license says Remote Desktop Services then you know it is the newer RDS CAL version.
FYI: Nothing wrong with retail licenses, but I recommend purchasing via volume licensing so that all your license information is available via the VLSC website. Even with volume licensing I recommend printing out license auth/agreement numbers, product keys, etc. and keeping them in a safe place just in case.
