You really can't package many of the Windows updates in a slipstream because they are registry or policy settings changes and have to be installed.

What I do, is go to the Microsoft Download Center once a week and manually download all of the updates I need for the systems I support.

Just the updates for Windows XP SP3 are over 700 MB.
Add in Media Player, .Net, and other useful redistributable Microsoft items and you can start to fill a DVD.

One method to stay on top of Security Updates and to get links to some updates that are not published is to subscribe to the Microsoft Security Bulletin.

There is also the Microsoft Update Catalog page where you can search for updates and download them.
