Downloading Windows Updates and Installing offline

    Hey,

    Few months back I posted a question about where security updates could be
    downloaded from so that they could be installed offline (perhaps on a
    friend's PC with a dialup connection, or to plug holes before hooking a new
    install up to the 'net). Thor replies with the site,
    http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp?corporate=true.

    But I have another question now. When choosing the updates, is there a way
    to run windows update off the CD. What I mean is to download the updates
    and then have the computer select which to install? This would be helpful
    if I need to install a particular update (or set of them) on a PC who's
    current state I am not sure of. Granted, I could go and look in Add/Remove
    Programs for the hotfixes that have been installed and then cross those off
    the list to install, but I was wondering if there was an easier way.


    Thanks in advance,

    Adam
