    I'm tired of evertime i work on someones computer i must download the same
    updates again and again. Is there a way to save them to an external harddrive
    and load them from there? thanks

    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.
    http://www.updatexp.com/download-ie6.html

    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.
