I have dialup internet. Doing a 100MB online OS update
is out of the question. I have access to broadband access across town.

Used to be able to download updates and install them offline.
But I can't find that link any more.
I have both 98SE and XP systems.
Pointer?
Thanks, mike

There's a mess of regular criticals, both at the corporate site
http://www.microsoft.com/windows98/downloads/corporate....

& at...
http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/catalog/en/defaul...
...., which also can be got by...
(1) "START button, Windows Update".
(2) Click "Personalize..." in left pane & then check "Display the
link..." in right pane.
(3) Click "Windows Update Catalog" in left pane, which is now under "See
Also". (Perhaps you need to leave & re-enter the site to see it.)
(4) Click "Find Updates..." in right pane.
(5) Select OS in window & click "Search".
(6) Select "Critical Updates...".

You must decide which apply to your computer, when you take them that
way. And the literature may not be perfectly clear about it. Perhaps, if
you've done it once letting the site decide, you may now...

"START, Find, F/F, 'Windows Update.log'". (Use double quotes around that
name.) Click it for a possible clue inside. Otherwise...

XP SP2 update can be ordered on CD from MS, its free. There's a few since
then, but not a big deal for even a telco modem.

I regularly collect updates from the windows update catalog and save them to
another physical hard drive. They're also burned to CD later. One fell
swoop on these is an all day affair with a telco modem if you include other
updates not security critical to the system. Sometimes its difficult to
tell what's applicable to both 98 and 98SE as the writeups and applicablity
notes are inaccurate regarding this.

I posted this link for another problem,
but it describes how to download updates manually,
so it will help you out also.
