EXE driver files are usually just self-extracting compressed files. By running it all that happens is that all the driver files are extracted and saved in a directory. Then you use the Add Printer wizard to install the printer. When asked for the printer model, browse to the location of the files; the wizard will find the INF file and ask to confirm the printer model.

Unfortunately the full driver package from tsaico's link is a full installer. However, the PCL5, PCL6 and PostScript drivers from the same link are compressed archives, so you should be able to use them as I described above.
