windows update manually

 I have a windows 2000 server SP4. This server is a secure server and is not allowed to access the internet. We have a WSUS server, but it is on another VLAN, and it is not alout to transverse to get the upates. Even thought it does not contact the internet the regulaters have said it needs all the windows updates. I have 2000SP4 server. I need to download all the updates and put them on a drive and do it this way. How can I accomplish this?

Microsoft did offer a free update CD, but I believe they stopped that. However, you can go to the Windows update cataloged site, select your operating system, it will then display all available updates, add the updates you want to your "download basket", and then download as one download. Then you can put these on a CD or DVD to take to your secure computer.

Where you have a WSUS server you could install WSUS on the 2000 which doesn't have internet access. Then you can export the updates to a CD from your primary WSUS server and import them to the offline WSUS server. Concept is outlined here (last scenario):
