How do I get updates to a Microsoft 2003 server that doesn't have internet access?

I have a server actually a bunch of servers that are on a closed network.  I am trying to install SQL Express 2005 and it is telling my server isn't updated and therefore won't install.  How can I get updates to my servers?  Thanks.

Download Microsoft Security Baseline Analyser from Microsoft.com
Run this on your server. Take down the missing patches no.
Download the patches from Microsoft Download Centre
Use qchain.exe tool to chain the updates together and run it on your servers

Alternative you can setup WSUS in your closed network. However you still need an online WSUS for the metadata to be exported to your closed WSUS

Hope it helps
Download the last Service Pack cd ISO and burn it with an image burner (like www.imgburn.com).
Requirements are always based on full service packs.
