Patch Management - Guidance

Howdy folks!

Quick questions for all the admins out there. Suppose I have an XP SP2 machine. What would be the quickest or easiest way to find out a list of all patches required to bring this up to speck short of building a machine & downloading all the patches & parsing through HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Updates\.

Same for Server 2003 SP1.

Cheers!
