extracting .rar with part01.rar?

I download alot of binaries from usenet.
Lately they have been posting in .rar and par2.
We have installed linux packages which handle these.
I can successfully decode files with an
.r00 or just plain .rar but not part01.rar
I have read the man pages for rar and unrar
In rar, it claims an option of vn to use old style
names, however, I can only
even begin to extract useing
unrar e file.rar or wildcard.rar
With the part01 types, it says, after extracting
all of them, "no files to extract.
Are their better commandline tools for rar/par
which will better handle these?
I was able to extract some of these in windows with winrar,
but especially since I am blind, I enjoy a commandline.
Thanks so much in advance

What version of unrar are you using?

I believe the change to "part1.rar" was made when unrar became version 3 - I am using unrar 3.x it was an RPM though - since I am on slackware, I just used rpm2tgz and installed with installpkg. I haven't had any problems unraring part1.rar files at all.

BTW, what do you use for par files?

par2 version 0.3 by Peter Brian Clemmens
Seems like the only way I can even get unrar
or rar to think about extracting is to use
e or x, not any of the vn or -vn options.
Thanks for any suggestions

For par:

par2repair filename.par2

For rar:

unrar x filename.part01.rar

Hope that helps.
