Default Windows Updates from a local "server"?

As most of you know, I have dial-up here at home, with one computer ("Server") that handles print and file sharing, Internet connection sharing, a little web server, and things like that. It is running Windows XP Professional.

I have dial-up on a dedicated phone line (21kbps) and about 8 computers that always want to download Automatic Updates. I usually leave Automatic Updates turned off.

With my little XP Pro "Server", can I configure it to download Automatic Updates from the internet, and then configure all of my XP Pro/Home cleint machines to get their updates from the local "Server"? My network is not a domain.

I wish i had a copy of Windows 2000 Server for this...
