There are no updates for VS.NET 2003 available yet. However, note that a
service pack for .NET Framework 1.1 exists:

That's a bug of VS.NET 2003. Not serious, though, since there is no service
pack for VS.NET 2003 yet, only hotfixes.

The hotfix for that bug is:

FIX: You cannot check for updates in Visual Studio .NET
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;836454

And the list of hotfixes for VS.NET (2002 / 2003) is:

Well that stinks. I have to call Microsoft to get the fix.
