Exclamation PLZ EXPLAIN STEP BY FRUSTRATING STEP! (installing .rar)

Alright i am really pissed off now, I know this topic has been covered a billion times because I have read them all, but still nothing seems to work, alright this is my problem!: I just installed rh9, now if this was you tell me please every little step you would take to install a .rar file in linux. We shall call the file, redhat.rar, now you have the file already downloaded ,but you dont have a compressor/decompressor (like unrar). now the questions: where (and i do mean where give me the site please) would you go to get the program that you would use to install redhat.rar (the file name that i made up in the begining) and how you installed the .rar compressor/decompressor. Give every command line that you would use to install the compressor/decompressor or however you would go about it. then evey command line you would use to install redhat.rar.
thank you.

um, are you looking for unrar? here's some redhat rpms for unrar.

as far as installing something in a .rar archive, it depends on what's in there.

edit: has a package for rh 9.
