F6 Installation of WinImage Self-Extracting File

I plan to install Windows XP SP2 on my PC. I further intend to build a RAID 1 array after installation of the  new OS. During  the installation of the OS I must install the drivers for the Intel Matrix Storage by means of the F6 installation method.
The download of the F6 drivers from the Intel download center for my particular motherboard (D975XBX2) downloads a WinImage Self-Extracting file. I downloaded it to the desktop of the PC I'm currently using then copied it onto a floppy diskette. Here is my particular concern: Will the F6 procedure extract the drivers from the WinImage Self-Extracting file and properly intall them in my new Windows OS or must I do something further to the WinImage Self-Extracting file to make the drivers available for installation along with my new Windows OS?

Typically, you extract the bare files to the floppy. They are not usually compressed. It maybe self extracting onto floppy.
