You can find alot of this info on MSDN
Just search for inf file.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I was looking for some information to help understand the inf features by doing a line by line review. The basic settings portion is pretty much in plain english. However, when you get to the registry edits regarding folder properties and the root section it is all gibberish.
