I have recently installed W2K (about 3 times and I finally got it right). Anyway, I want to know if there is any way to save all the windows updates/services packs I've downloaded. I'm a hopeless tweaker, and it's just a matter of time before I screw things up enough that I have to reinstall. I have a dialup connection, and I really don't want to spend hours dling that stuff again, so if I could save all my updates in such a way as to easily be able to reinstall them (i.e. from a CD-R or Zip disk), life would be much easier!

Thanks a bunch

Once installed, you can't save them to disk any more.

All Windows Updates, including Internet Explorer and all the rest can however be downloaded in their entirety from the <A HREF="http://corporate.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp">Windows Update Corporate Site</A>

Just choose save to disk, instead of 'run from current location'

Good luck,

Thanks a million! That's not EXACTLY what I was looking for, but in all honestly, it's more than I had expected; I'm surprised that MS would make updates available that way at all....
