    Does Microsoft offer a cumulative Windows XP update for IT folks who don't
    want to download from Microsoft all of the latest updates each time? It
    would be much faster for us to install these updates from CD.

    Autopatcher is what you need - easy

    You can make a slipstream disk if you want a DIY solution but its a hell of
    a rigmarole, you can probably install a dozen XP boxes by the time you
    figure it out, balls it up, start again, crash and so on.

    Don't think MSFT do one and even if they did do you really want all the
    updates they regard as critical - I think not.

    Thanks Jonah...

    Since we are using a WSUS server in our environment, is there a way to force
    a client to get its updates from the WSUS server on demand? I know it can be
    scheduled at a certain time, but is there a way to force it get the updates
    from the WSUS server?
