You are confused; make.cdf.env() makes the environment for the 
hu35ksubacdf package, not the annotation package.

As noted, you don't need the CDF file (which simply maps chip 
coordinates to probes).

You will need to use the ABPkgBuilder() function in AnnBuilder. For this 
you will need a text file containing a column of Affy IDs and a column 
of Entrez Gene IDs, which you can get from this file:


I think the vignette for this package is relatively straightforward. See 
ABPrimer for more info.
