The batch file in June’s post, SP2 May Fail to Install If a Large Number of Updates Are Installed, has been edited to add an attrib -s command to remove the system file attribute for the rest of it to complete successfully.
The note in Step 6 of the Manual method was updated to cover what you should do if KB912354.cat does not exist. If the KB912354.cat file does not exist on your server, go to step 7. The software update in KB 912354 is included in Windows Server 2003 SP2.
KB 940276 has also been published recently to document this same workaround in the Microsoft Support Knowledge Base. It also includes both of these updates.
