linux archiver... quick question !!

Can this archiver on ubuntu extract .rar files?

Or any prog on ubuntu ? I need to work with rar files but if it can't be done I'll be looking for mirrors I guess..

Since you're using ubuntu, I think you have the Synaptic Package Manager. Open it and do a search for "rar". You should find the program "unrar".
