    The problem with THAT solution is the same one as ALL CD based software.....by the time it gets in your hands it's outdated. When was the last time you used the drivers off the CD for ANY hardware you've installed? I'm always grabbing them before hand or over onto PC #2 d'l-ing the latest version. Additionally, the majority of us have CD burners and broadband....this makes as much sense as asking us to pay (even postage) for the printed version of a manual included on a CD. We'd all just print it ourselves if we wanted a hardcopy.

    There's a website called Microsoft Windows Update Catalog at http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/catalog/

    You can download the updates from that site and burn it into a CD, what I do is I check that site every week, and then save the new d/ls into a different folder...

    ifu really want the latest katest stuff, alot of the time you can "catch" the downloads in the "x:\program files\windowsupdate\cabs" folder and save them aside for later use, i have done this for a long time at work so we can have the latest, as the downloads site was always lagging by a few months...

    however lately i have noticed that more and more of the downloads are cab files that require more guidance and so i tend to use these downloads as a sort of pre-caching for windowsupdate, tricking it into thinking it had already downloaded them...

    there is another section somewhere on MS for "corporate" users with network install downloads for various things, generally it has versatile packs for everything that comes out - again, this site always seemed to lag by a month or two
