WindowsUpdate... update over LAN?

I setup and help maintain over a couple hundred computers, most connecting to the Internet via a LAN.  I think it is very important to keep our computers as up-to-date as possible with Microsoft's bug fixes and security patches.  The problem is that it takes a long time to do this on a network our size.  Is there any way that I could download these updates to a local server and then have the client computers get the updates from the local server?

(20 points if you know the definite yes/no answer to this question, an additional 80 points if the answer is yes and you can tell me how to implement it.)
