How to extract the files from a .deb in Windows

I'm using ZipGenius, but 7-Zip may also work.

1) rename the .deb file or append .bz2
2) Extract with ZipGenius or 7-Zip

The .deb file has likely a few files in it. You want data.tar.gz ... extract it.

In my case, I needed firmware-bnx2_0.14+lenny1_all.deb\data.tar\lib\firmware\bnx2-06-4.0.5.fw
