What is a cab.dat file? And is it possible to make 1?

I have fifa 2005 but it is in german. In the read me file it tells me i have to paste in the english cab.dat file. The only problem is, there is no cab.dat file. So as this is the case i was wondering what it was and if possible if i would be able to make it myself.
Thanks in advance.

The English language files should be on the CDs?

I actually downladed the game from bit comet. So i don't have the cab.dat files. Would i be able to make them myself? Or is it too complicated?
Thanks in advance
The .dat file will be a custom data file which will contain English localisation details (such as english text for menus and english commentary sound files). You have almost no chance of making it yourself.

If you want to play the game, buy it. If you're not sure you are going to like it hire it from a video store first to try it, then buy it.
