Hi,

Here is the official page of Microsoft. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc720507.aspx

Basically its not that hard.
The steps to take are.

1)download and install the software

2)Configurate the basics with the wsus administration module via MMC.

3)Send via GPO the settings of your wsus server to the clients and the clients will automatically download.

One thing u have to take into account is that a wsus server needs quite some space on the server. To store all the updates locally in more then 1 language easily takes up to a few 100Gb.

If u have more questions let me know.
