    type "unrar" in a terminal (probably xterm) if you get any output other than "command not found" then you allready have rar support. this is what you should see:

    variant@fedora:~> unrar

    UNRAR 3.00 freeware Copyright (c) 1993-2002 Eugene Roshal

    Usage: unrar <command> -<switch 1> -<switch N> <archive> <files...>
    <@listfiles...> <path_to_extract\>

    and then the list of commands..

    if you download the linux version from rarlabs you will have to compile (not hard) it yourself there is a LOT of info on how to compile software in other posts so just use the search facility on this page to look for anything relateing to compileing source code

    how do you install applications on linux?
    If you have installed WINE tool in your PC you can do that.

    All you need to do is just download and install the wine tool for linux and then go to shell
    there using the command

    shell$ wine filename.ext

    That should install the file or else let me know i will try to find another way.
