I need to deploy XP. Is there a method that will allow me to update the image while it's being deployd? Meaning, not Windows Update over the net, are there packages or something that can be downloaded?

I don't believe Windows XP can be updated this way. You'd need to add the updates to the running OS, sysprep, and capture.

You can update through WSUS if you are using it, or by downloading the updates from Microsoft Update Catalog found here and installing during deployment

If you don't want to update your Windows installation using Windows updates through the internet, you'll have to use WSUS. This is basically a local Windows update server that you will install as a server role. Using this server role you can specify which products you want to provide updates for, and what kind of updates (critical only, optional, service packs and such). You can select to a very granular level which updates should be allowed to be installed.
Using WSUS, will make allow you to install the updates from a local network location instead of the client needing to fetch the updates over your wan connection.
Alternatively, there's a project called "Offine WSUS" which gets all the installer files for the updates for the products that you specify, and then you can install them manually as applications. To do this efficiently you'll need to script something though, but this is too much manual work for something that's already provided as an in-box-feature if you ask me. http://download.wsusoffline.net/
FYI, Windows XP images, also cannot be updates offline using dism.
