Software Update Caching

I have software update enabled on my server and it is caching updates on my boot drive. I would like it to cache updates on my hard drive as my boot drive is very small. How can this be accomplished?

I don't know what OS version you are running.

In Lion server you go to Server Admin application, click on the arrow on the server for services, choose Software Update, in settings you specify Store Updates in: and you enter the path
