{RPM} unRAR in CentOS, Fedora, RedHat

i found CentOS was a bit rude to UnRAR the rar files, and even in 'yum' installing the unrar {at least for me}... so here is rpm way for it... if you are also facing same problem

[] Downloading the suitable RPM {you can download from any location}
wget http://dag.wieers.com/packages/unrar/unrar-3.6.2-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm

[] Installing RPM
rpm -Uvh unrar-3.6.2-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm

[] Using
- to extract RAR files in current dir
unrar e rarfile.rar

- to extract RAR files with Pathname
unrar x rarfile.rar
