Actually it's very clear, beginner oriented article with easy to follow step by step instructions. It got average rating 7 out of 9 which is very good especially considering this is not an easy topic and a major pain point for developers. It does require certain familiarity with CABs and MS Installer and might be frustrating if it's your first deployment project.

CAB creation can fail for several reasons; most common is a very long path. Please see this:

After you get the CABs, you package them into MSI which you give to your customers. They would install MSI on desktop which would push CAB to the device and install them.
