          Just for completeness in the answer, Microsoft are NOT a legislative body and therefore there ARE NO Microsoft Copyright Laws.

            According to the deployment guide it is only possible with Win2k server and Win 2003.

            Even if it were possible, why would you want to? XP only allows 10 inbound connections. If you are running in a workgroup environment of less than 10 clients it might be beneficial to have that capability, but that's about it. The WSUS installation docs state "server" versions only.
            How can you say the links were not any help? First link. Extracted the above TWO quotes. How do they NOT help? I bolded the appropriate parts that were of no help.

            Maybe then you could read the WSUS Deployment Guide. I am sure it shall be of help.

            My thanks to http://www.wsus.info/forums for the 2 above quotes.

              Hmmm!

              Not that the links were not of any help. Just that they didn't help me to enable the WSUS to run off of XP.

              I understand that it was designed to run on server. But surely MS should make it possible for home enviroments to use WSUS on a stand alone XP Pro installation. Home users would be able to use this product too.

              Thanks for the help though.

                Um, I think that's why they put Automatic Update on XP.

                  The simple answer as far as I am aware is NO! You cannot install WSUS on XP The install will not run.
                  You need to install on Windows Server system 2000 or 2003.

                    Like quoted before their would be no benefit to installing wsus on your home standalone computer. Auto updates does the same job. Wsus is only really beneficial in a server-lan environment with a testing environment if required. Its an auto update control panel for networks with a few reporting tools.
