Not that the following is guaranteed to be robust to affy file movement, but

  rsrc <- NetAffxResource("your at username", "password")
  sapply(affxAnnotation(rsrc[["HuEx-1_0-st-v2"]]), affxDescription)
  anno <-  affxFile(rsrc[["HuEx-1_0-st-v2",
                          "Probeset Annotations, CSV Format"]])
  csv <- readAnnotation(rsrc, annotation=anno)

The vignette "Annotation retrieval with NetAffxResource" is a useful
starting place.
