I downloaded a linux distro (Freeware) from a Usenet server, but for some reason I can't seem to extract it. The files are .001 to .050. I know files with those extensions usually means the archives were split.

Here's all the things I tried that failed.

1. Used HJSplit to join them, and extract the archive, which oddly resulted in a 50mb ISO (Real size is much larger).
2. Extracted the .001 file with WinRar, resulted in asking me to locate the .R01 file which means it's not using volumes.
3. Extracted .001 with 7-Zip, resulted in it extracting a 50mb ISO like in #1.
3. Selected all .001 through .050 and extracted with 7-zip, resulted in extracting each one, but replacing the previously extracted one.

It came with PARs so I checked them with QuickPar and all the files are there, none are broken or anything. I also used 7-zip to test the .001 file and it showed the full size of it.

So how the heck am I supposed to extract it?


Edit: Also, if I check .050 with 7-zip it says the archive is broken, but according to QuickPar, it's not.

Nope, no .RAR in there, and the SFV and PAR doesn't say there's supposed to be.

Ubuntu 8.04.

It wasn't packed by the developers though. It was packed by whoever distributed it on usenet.
