Extracting multi-part RAR archives?

Hello everyone!

I downloaded a 2.3 gig file that came in a multi-parted RAR file. FileRoller doesn't recognize it, neither does RAR with this command:
rar x wb-wv32Bit5308dvd.rar iso/
Is the file corrupted, or do I have to try another program? Thanks!

No, the files were corrupted, they were all 0 KB in size... I saw the download said "FAILED", but for some reason I didn't believe it... I'll download it again though! Thanks!
