My windows 2000 advance server will not allow me to install microsoft updates, it says that because it is not the domain controller I am not allowed to download from the microsoft update site.  I do however have the windows icon displayed next to the clock telling me to install updates but when i click on it the icon vanishes.  I think updates are downloaded is there another way I can get to them, are they staored somewhere?
