Yes, you can write downloaded driver files to CD and later install them. For your convenience, you might uncompress them prior to writing to cd (some drivers come as .zip archives, some - like nVidia drivers - as .exe that don't need decompression).
You will need to burn 'data cd'.

If you have windows XP you can just copy those files across to the driver letter which is your cd writer (much easier than nero).

As tapkep said, if you want you can decompress all zip, ace and rar files. but make sure you make a folder with a name you will understand. You can rename the zip, exe, ace and rar file to something that will make sense to you in a few months. (windows will keep the extension the same.
