    u need to use the
    Code:
    unrar e filename.rar
    command, should sort it out for you

    Though make sure you put the rar file in it's own folder, some dont extract to a new folder.

    just run the command
    Code:
    unrar e filename.rar
    change filename.rar to the filename of the file you are trying to unrar.
