CentOS comes with no Rar/Unrar support by default. Here's a quick tutorial to install them both on CentOS 32 and 64 bit.

For CentOS 64 bit :

Install unrar :

wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/unrar/unrar-4.2.3-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
rpm -Uvh unrar-4.2.3-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

Install rar :

wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rar/rar-3.8.0-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
rpm -Uvh rar-3.8.0-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm

For CentOS 32 bit :

Install unrar :

wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/unrar/unrar-4.2.3-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm
rpm -Uvh unrar-4.2.3-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm

Install rar :

wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rar/rar-3.8.0-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm
rpm -Uvh rar-3.8.0-1.el6.rf.i686.rpm

I hope you will have a good time here and will excuse me for my bad English, it's still a work in progress, but i really wanted to give it a shot so I could share with as many people as possible.
