tl;dr: I downloaded the client from the http link version, but the data2.cab file could not be extracted, which meant the installer didn't work.

After a long break from DN, I wanted to return to see how my characters and (expired) pets are doing, so after the good ol' client patched up, I logged in just fine (nice to see the login background is like the very first character creation scene - brings back memories) and went through to character select. So, of course, I went ahead and selected my main. Hey I could even get one of those 'Returned Dragoner' gift sets, how lovely.
However, I was unable to start the game; every time I pressed "start game", I was disconnected from the server.
Unable to fix that easily, I thought, "hey, no biggie, I'll just reinstall". So that's what I tried to do.
Apparently the old client installer wouldn't work anymore, so I downloaded a newer version off the website.

I downloaded that http link version, but the data2.cab file could not be extracted, which meant the installer didn't work. Any way to fix this?

(I'm not very tech-savvy so I don't torrent things and the multipart download looks pretty daunting.)

Would you try re-downloading the http client again please, perhaps a package error occurred while downloading the file. Also make sure your old client is fully uninstalled, (remove the game folder after uninstalling etc.) and have your Windows fully up to date using Windows Updates.
