Connecting to the Web 1st time-update XP in lump?

As well as sorting out a crashing machine (different thread) my bro is setting up to connect to the net. So his vanilla XP install is suddenly going to pop onto the net and I was wondering whether it would be better to update it piecemeal or as a lump to correct the ton of security patches that must be out there.

What's the view?

(I've already advised him to set up decent Firewall, virus checker, trojan hunter etc)

do it in a lump but set it to download some time when he is not at the pc, while he is at work during the day or over night.
