Yeah easy, configure your Windows Update to auto update. On all machines. That way the rest is done by the machines. Just schedule the machines to auto update at a certain time.

Just another thing, it's not like Symantec where you can run a server and update all machines from there by installing a .dat file on each of the machines. Basically just have to configure each one of the machines once to auto update at a certain time and you're set from there.

Hope that helps?

Yep still in luck, what you need to do is go to the microsoft site and download the SUS Server SP1. Enables administrators to deploy critical updates to Windows 2000-based, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 computers.

Here's the link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/windowsupdate/sus/default.asp

You'll be able to find it there, this way you point your clients to your server for windows updates.

Hope that helps, lemme know if you have any trouble?

Just a note, you'll want to look towards the bottom of the page where you'll see a link that says: Download SUS with Service Pack 1 (SP1). This takes you to the page where you can get it and it tells ya all about it there as well.
