You could also looking into deploying a WSUS server. This will give you alot more control over what updates and when are applied.

Give it the option to update it automatically, so it will find any update and download it

Create a short cut with the location of the windows xp update .exe file. Drop the shortcut in the startup folder. This will let the update run as when the user logs in.

For the best results you may want to use WSUS:
