 Need to install a .cab driver. How?

I downloaded the latest AMD drivers off Windows Update,
for my Athlon.  It gave me a .cab file, and I don't know
how to install the driver.  I tried double clicking it,
but winRAR just opened the thing.  I know its supposed to
be easy, but I just can't remember how to do it!

Tehre is no driver for .cab. It is an archive file, so just take the
files out of the archive. WinRAR is right in doing that, if you had paid
attention when isntalling it, you would have noticed it associating
itself with .cab files.

I understand this.  You mis-understood me.  I need to know
what I do when I extract the .cab file.  There's 4 files
in the .cab file... now what do I DO with them?  I found a
duplicate of the .sys file in my normal windows directory,
but the other three files aren't anywhere on my system
except in the cabinet file.  How do I go about installing
these drivers that were compressed in the .cab file?

.cab doesn't actually compress, btw.

but, anyways, if you are updating drivers for device x:

My computer > properties > hardware [tab] > device manager [button] > find
device x > double-click device x > driver [tab] > update driver... point it
to wherever those 4 files are

if you are installing a new device:

control panel > add hardware > follow the wizard until you can select from a
list > have disk [button] > point it to the folder with 4 files

make sure there is an .inf file, otherwise this won't work...

WinZip will also allow you to extract specific files from a .cab, if you
have it.
