up2date kicked off via a cron job every night

up2date was created by redhat and can be found on it's variants.

apt-get if your using Debian

g0rath, I think the poster is looking for a way to gather and distribute MS Patches using a Linux machine... not looking to keep a Linux machine patched.

I'm interested in the same thing, so I'm listening too...

ash4stuff,

You can use Microsoft tools like MBSA or the "DOS" version of HFNetCheck from Shavlik to scan your local system to see what patches are installed or "missing".
