How to update a 'modemless' win98 PC

I have a stand alone Win98 PC without a modem.  There is not a phone nearby either, so installing a modem is not what I want.

With Win95, I could download the patches, copy them to a zip disk and upgrade this way.  With Win98, I need a modem to pull down patches.

Is there a way to download the individual update files and upgrade this way?  Any caveat's?  Can I buy an update CD anywhere???

After each download, the patch are store in C:\windows\msdownld.tmp you can copy the downloaded patches to Zip disk to the standalone PC.
