I believe that LisTool.exe can help you overcome the issue with not being able to point to the network install path.

If you have trouble installing updates, make sure you are logged in as an administrator of your computer. You may also want to review the discussion here (applies to Office 2003 where you moved the installation source, or deleted the MSI file): http://support.microsoft.com/kb/903776/en-us   This article gives a link for LisTool.exe, a program that allows you to disable or update the Local Installation Source -- thereby allowing the updates to proceed properly.

You will also find that the full-file version of the Office updates provides a greater chance of success (including many times when the normal updater fails). It also avoids the need to insert the Office CD-ROM. The drawback, however, is a much larger download size.

You can download full-file versions of the Office updates from these web pages:
Office 2003           http://www.microsoft.com/office/orkarchive/2003ddl.htm

More current list of Office 2003 updates:   http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/downloads/CD010798601033.aspx

For the full-file version of the Office 2003 Service Release 2, see the link at the bottom of this page: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=57E27A97-2DB6-4654-9DB6-EC7D5B4DD867&displaylang=en

You can get a CD with the patches from Microsoft: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/FX010383631033.aspx

If all else fails, and you resort to uninstalling Office, then you may also need to use the Windows cleanup utility to remove the registry entries: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/en-us
