Fedora "rar" is in e.g. the atrpms repo.

But : Fedora 14 is unsupported : No more rar packages with yum.

A Fedora 12 / EL6 package should be usable ..
32bits : rar-3.8.0-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm
64bits : rar-3.8.0-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

The 17,000 Fedora packages can still be installed. For many years.
In some months, the current links to package install will stop.
Then you can make new baseurl's in /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora* ,,,
pointing to the old archive ...
http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pu...14/Everything/ ..
http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pu...ux/updates/14/ ..

But there are no security updates any more.
So you may consider installing Fedora 17, or a long term supported
version of Fedora 12 : CentOS 6 / Scientific Linux SL6.
