    You Bet. I've got a CD full of Windows Upates that I downloaded on the school T3 line so I wouldn't have to wait for it to download on my slow dial-up connection at home. It works great.

    This has nothing to do with any of Microsoft's products... it has to do with a service provided by microsoft. In this case, how corporations receive their updates. Don't panic yet.

    The way I understand it, it just means that corporations can't keep updates on a company owned server anymore. They have to get all of the updates from Microsoft. But I could be wrong.

    Unless I am mistaken this "new update site" ya'll are talking about is the same Windows Catalog site that has always been there for the sake of downloading and saving window updates from.

    Just a different (manual) procedure for corporate.

    Yes, this is basically just the Windows Catalogue. You click the start menu link and after the WU page loads you add "?corporate=true" to the end of the URL (minus the quotes of course). Quite simple and you can use it to get updates for a company owned server. You just have to read up on it a bit. It's not much use to me anymore cause I'm finished school for now but it worked great for getting the larger updates on the school's fast connection because I didn't want to spend the time downloading them at home on my slow connection.
