Patching fresh install in WSUS environment

What is the best practice for wanting to patch a fresh install of Windows 2k/XP if the computer account falls under a GPO that points to a WSUS server, thus disabling windowsupdate.microsoft.com?  WSUS would take days to patch it as it can only do a few patches at a time.

Thanks,

First of all, I'm not sure WSUS completely disables windowsupdate.microsoft.com, I think it just disables the automatic updates. I think that manually going to the windows update website should still work.
If it doesn't, suppose that you've just installed a new computer - simply update it through the windows update website and only then join it to the domain.

Create an image with all the current patches. Ghost the image. Deploy that to yournew machines.

As stated above...WSUS does NOT disable updates from windowsupdate.microsoft.com
