I have 1 windows 2003 server and 10 workstations. My office does not have internet access but I need to patch and update all windows xp workstations to date. Is there a way to push out all patches from my server?
Is there a method or I need to buy software. Is there a free software (if needed)

Install the Microsoft WSUS on the server.  Since you don't have internet access I would also install it to another machine (notebook?).  On the notebook you can download all of the patches into it.

Then in your Windows server WSUS installation you can choose an alternate location to download updates from (another WSUS server).  Choose your notebook to be the 'other WSUS' server source and it should download the updates from the notebook.  
Then you can set a GPO policy so that all of the workstations get the updates from the Windows 2003 WSUS location.

Anytime you need to update again, update your notebook and have the Server download from the notebook.

Here is some info for making the GPO policy so that the workstations get updates from the Server WSUS.
