deploying Internet Explorer 9 updates via WSUS

Need to deploy Internet Explorer 9 to Windows XP and Windows 7 clients from WSUS. Searching for IE 9 on the WSUS server I found IE 9 plus all of the cumulative updates. Do I need to approve IE 9 itself first and than approve the updates later. Or can I approve everything IE 9 related and Windows update will handle the installation sequence?

My question is, after searching and finding all IE 9 related updates, should I ONLY approve IE 9 itself for the appropriate OS? Than once IE 9 has been pushed down and installed approve all of the IE 9 updates. Or can I approve IE 9 and all of the cumulative updates at the same time?

Sorry I missed that you stated approve IE 9 for your OS, as opposed to approving all of the IE updates
