RAR for Linux
I have recently downloaded RAR for Linux, and it is a bit hard for me to use,
since I don't understand the confusing explanation you get in the shell.
Could anyone tell me how to do the following, so I can understand it better (not just me,
but anyone that sees this thread and has te same problem):
>open the file "/home/hajime/Desktop/games.rar"
and put the inside files into "/home/hajime/Desktop"

I've never heard of that distro, but if you are sure that its compatible with FC, then go to rpm.pbone.net, search for unrar and get a Fedora package (make sure you don't get a debuginfo rpm). You can then use the rpm command to install the package.

Several years ago I had packed a set of files into several 1.4 Mb rar files on several floppy disks.
Unfortunately one of the floppy disk is damaged/bad sectors.
I cannot unrar the whole set of files.
Is it possible to retriieve several files from the whole set of files?
Is there any rar / unrar recovery utility on Linux?
