Go to the MS Windows Update site.

On the left hand side of the window choose "windows Catalog" Download
the updates you want for what ever OS you want and burn them to a CD or
save them on a file server.

This works best on a older machine that uses v4 of windows update
instead of v5

You can also google for "network install SP2" (for XP) and "network
install SP4" for 2k.

That will save you a lot of time. Although the last time I did a clean
install of 2ksp4 I think there were 27 critical updates, and another 15
after I installed IE6.

The other big ones to get are Direct X, WMP. You can get MP7.1 from
www.oldversion.com and install the WMP9 codec pack. This is a great
idea for older 9x or even 2k clients running on slower machines.

Full IE6 downloads are available too, ther is a trick to it, here is a
lint to a set of instructions.

Another Tip. You might have to install some updates seperatly, but you
dont always have to reboot before installing the next set. Example,
you can install all the critical updates besides IE, Direct X, then
install IE6, then reboot, instead of rebooting 3 (or more) times.
