Offline Patching made easy

How do you patch machines (OS updates only) that are off the network without having to download many individual updates.  Microsoft has a solution for you to use as a stand-alone or use and modify for your purposes.

Security updates are available on ISO-9660 DVD5 image files from the Microsoft Download Center

One month might be as small as 200MB or as large as 3GB.  This is because it contains all the languages the Microsoft has to offier.

It is a fully comprehensive download but it beats downloaing every individual update.
