I know this is a bit stupid, but if you are pointed to a Microsoft
Windows driver that happens to be an .exe file, how do I extract the
.inf file from it (especially if it is an executable program that
installs files for you automatically on a Windows machine.)
I know some .exe files are self-extracting zip files, which makes things
easy, but it is not obvious from looking at the driver .exe file what it
is (and the web page offering it as a download might not document it.)

The 'unzip' utility should have no problem extracting from self-extracting zips.

I'm not sure what you're asking--are you talking about MS's *.cab
files? I haven't ran into those for the driver I've used...
