For anyone who may be interested:
Thanks to ericb's post, I came home from work and looked into this.
The file "C:\Program Files\Sony\Station\Launchpad\lp_eq2env.xml" contains some urls, but not for the actual patch files. It does, however, contain the url to the file that DOES have the list of patch files http://184.108.40.206:7010/patch/eq2/en/eq2-update.xml
will get you the file that contains a list of all the patch files available. From that you can then deduce how to acquire them.
For example, if you want to download enchanted.vpk_delta_1.gz
You would enter the following in your browser:http://220.127.116.11:7010/patch/eq2/en/patch1/main/paks/enchanted.vpk_delta_1.gz
Use winRar or some such to decompress and then cut and paste into the appropriate location on your hard drive.
Or in my case, write a script that parses the eq2-update.xml file and auto-pull all that content at work then burn it onto a dvd
