    The only way I know of is if you do a remote desktop connection. But there could be another way, though.

    Why pay MS when you can make one for free from the ISO image file they offer

    Another option is to download the full SP3 installer file and save to your chosen media

    Of course as you are on dialup you may want to find a friend with a broadband connection and download using their PC ;)

    There are a few places on the where you can do offline updates. Just have to google them. I have used this one in the past with good results but no promises as it's been awhile.
