To me it just seems like .inf files are just glorified text documents. But its the only file Nlite recognizes , so ... will this work ?
Self extracting archives are just regular EXEs and for Universal Extractor to work, it would have to have been a self extracting archive (all those files are, is a Windows PE file format (ie a regular EXE) but with an archive (pkzip, MS Cabinet, Rar, etc) stored as a resource. It's actually quite basic stuff to do, but very neat solution.
In regards to your question though, you'll likely need all the files. the Inf is basically just an install script - the other files will be the drivers et al.
