win2k service packs

we have some terminals running a point of sale system.  the pos is being upgraded and we were advised to have the latest service pack for them.  they are running win2k and seem to have service pack 2 or 3 on them.  is there much of a difference between the service packs and is 4 the latest?  
my main question is where to find the service pack where I can download a stand alone service pack file so I can just thumb drive it from one terminal to the next since they have no outside internet access.  thank you :-)
ps  the pos driver is running on an xp box out back and they are all part of that network.  is there also a way they can use the xp box internet connection to download files?
ps  I think I just found the sp 4 download site?   http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=4127

SP4 is the latest. This is the download page from MS.
You can use XP's ICS.

As far as using the internet, how does the XP box get access?  If it is fairly conventional (modem and router to a high-speed connection) you should just need to confirm that the Default Gateway and DNS settings are correct on the 2000 boxes.  You can check those with:
start
run
cmd
ipconfig /all
