Hi,
You cannot cache windows update on ISA 2004 because it is transferred by Background Intelligent Transfer Service that uses HTTP range headers, and ISA does not support that.
If you are using AD, Windows Update Services (like EmpKent mentioned) is a good solution for maintaining and forcing client's updates.  http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserversystem/sus/susdeployment.mspx
