    I have a Windows XP version 5.1.2600 SP2 machine connected to the
    Internet through dail-up. The updates are so huge that these cannot be
    downloaded using the slow speed of the dial-up connection.

    However, I have two other machines at a separate location one running
    Windows 2000 and the other running Linux and both have a high speed
    connection to the Internet. I want to download the updates for my
    Windows XP machine on one of these computers and then burn them to a CD
    and then take this CD to the XP machine and apply the updates i.e. (1)
    find out which updates are required for an XP SP2. (2) Download these
    updates in a directory of my computer and then copy to a CD (3) Apply
    these updates to the XP.

    How do I do this?

    Thanks in advance for all your help.
