I need to download all the Win ME updates to take with me to my parents house so I don't have to download it all on their dial-up. Anybody know where on MS's site this stuff is?

I believe you're SOL on this one since the WinME on your folk's computer needs to be validated first by the MS website before getting/showing the necessary updates...

There is no validation required if you skip Windows Update entirely. Click here to go directly to ME downloads.
