How can I install unrar (if it is possible to install just unrar and not the whole rar) in linux CentOs?

I just need a website with the source code or the binaries.

Add the rpmforge repository if you don't have it already, then just yum install unrar

Info on rpmforge, adding it etc.

Here's a link to the rpm

Not sure if you will need rar as well, you might for dependancies, you will also need GLIBC_2.7 if you don't have it already (it will tell you if you dont have it).
