I have 4 computers all running XP pro & a dell server running 2003 sp2, at the moment all the pc's run windows update by themselves downloading seperate copies of each update & service pack, this of coarse uses up broadband allocation and bandwidth. I think I now have the server downloading all these updates and want to know how do I redirect the pc's to the server to get the updates from it. Thus I only download the relevant files only once.

Is your server a domain controller?  WSUS 3 is really simple to set up and use, but there's a lot of people around here that can help out if you get stuck along the way
