WinRAR on Linux

I have password protected RAR files from WinRAR when I had Windows XP, I moved my files to my /home folder and I forgot to unencrypt the RAR files. Does any one know of any way I can extract the data from my password protected RAR files? I still have the passwords to them. The problem is I need a Linux program to try and open those files and prompt for the password.

Damn, I didn't know they had a Linux version. I feel like a dumb ass. Thanks! I scowled down and got the 3.3.0 version I try to stay away from "betas".
