Slackware install boot cd image files located?

I downloaded slackware disk 1 to 3 via torrent.
Now I have 3 nice .rar files which I have uncompressed, and these two accompanying each:

I'm running Windows XP, and have nero.
The two above files appear to be image files but nero doesn't think so, and I can neither find any other image file to make my install boot cd.
I read the other stickied forum topic "So you wan to be a slacker..." which seems to say I should be on the look out for these files:


I don't have a floppy drive, I do have a memory stick but unsure if my system allows usb booting.

the official torrents do not contain rar files. Are you sure it's not an .iso file instead a rar file. In windows, if you don't have known extensions shown, you just get a file name with an icon which is associated to that type of file. Winrar can open iso files, so it's likely that the iso file (a known extension) has the icon associated with Winrar.
