If you mean windows updates, then I would suggest using a remote desktop connection such as the built in windows remote software. The computers will have to be a form of "Professional Edition" of either Vista or XP. Then just enable remote connections to that pc, and go from there.

XP:

Right click "My Computer" and select properties
Click on the Remote Tab
Click to allow remote connections and select users that will have access (needs to have a password for the user account)
Write down the Computer name and then go to your PC
Click Start>All Programs>Accessories>Remote Desktop Connection
Type in other computers name and hit connect
Perform updates from there
NOTE: Only one user can be logged in at one time. If someone else is using it, it will kick them out of the system until the decide to re-login, but if they do that while you are in there, it will log you off the remote connection

VISTA:

Right click MY COMPUTER and select properties
Select "Advanced System Settings"
Select Remote Tab and allow connections
<The rest of the steps are the same as above>
