update downloads too big for dial up
There are too many huge updates to download to my desk top at 28.8 dial up.
(all that is available here). Is there anyway to download them to my laptop
at work where I have highspeed and then transfer them by usb key? Tks... LO

Yes, via the Microsoft Update Catalog (assuming you know what updates the
computer needs).

RE: update downloads too big for dial up
Or for each security update bulletin, click on the appropriate link to your
OS version [and service pack] and download them individually.

Once done, create a batch file. Copy the EXE names into it - one line at a
time.
Add .\ at the beginning. Add /q /z [quiet & no reboot] at the end of each
line.
Run the batch file. Reboot at the end. Depending on your IE version the /q
/z may not work.

Example:

..\WindowsServer2003-KB923561-x86-ENU /q /z
..\WindowsServer2003-KB961373-x86-ENU /q /z

Note that MS09-012 I think has 2 updates for most OSs.

Note that Office updates don't work the same way.
