From what I can see windowsupdate is just a HTTP server. All the fancy
logics on what to apply to your computer is executed by the active-x
component run locally on your computer by the browser.

To set up a local windows-update server you shoud only need to mirror the
files, and have the requests redirected to your local mirror instead of
the MS servers.
