I am getting the following message when I am trying to do a CanonScan 5600F installation and setup from CD-ROM

Archive:  /media/CANOSCAN/MSETUP4.EXE
  End-of-central-directory signature not found.  Either this file is not
  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the
  latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
  the last disk(s) of this archive.
zipinfo:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of /media/CANOSCAN/MSETUP4.EXE or
          /media/CANOSCAN/MSETUP4.EXE.zip, and cannot find /media/CANOSCAN/MSETUP4.EXE.ZIP, period.

You cannot use the Windows driver in Linux. Probably it will work out of the box. Just connect the scanner and check if it is recognized. –  Salem Oct 5 '12 at 19:52
