failed to extract microsoft .CAB files (hotfix for WinXP) under LINUX


Hi All,
I'm trying to extract some windows cabinet files under
slackware 10.2 (kernel 2.6)
I'm using cabextract, and it works fine, BUT
after extraction i've got the following files:
original file:
-rw-r--r-- 1 user users 2117872 2006-04-13 13:23 WindowsXP-KB917425-x86-ENU.exe

after extraction:
-rw-r--r-- 1 user users 248621 2005-10-13 04:59 _sfx_0000._p
-rw-r--r-- 1 user users 46346 2005-10-13 04:59 _sfx_0001._p
-rw-r--r-- 1 user users 293 2006-03-30 21:36 _sfx_0002._p
-rw-r--r-- 1 user users 449 2005-12-19 20:05 _sfx_0003._p
-rw-r--r-- 1 user users 3225 2006-03-30 21:36 _sfx_0004._p

-rw-r--r-- 1 user users 969 2006-03-30 21:48 _sfx_manifest_
drwxr-xr-x 2 user users 80 2006-04-13 15:40 update

Now this ._p files looks to be compressed files . So if I understand correct, there are compressed files inside .cab file.
I did some investigation, and found this:
support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb%3Ben-us%3B828030

It says in short: "use Micro$oft's product to extract the contents". But I need to extract the files under linux.

Also I found this: "The package is an Intra-Package Deltas-aware (IPD-aware) package." <-- Any ideas what is this, and how can i extract it ?


10x in advice.
