Program, singular. And a very useful and free one to boot. How have you not come across .RAR files before?

In any case the solution to your problem isn't a difficult one at all. Grow a pair and get to it.

Any time you have trouble running an old game on a modern PC, try

The site is called Vogons, being short for Very Old Games On New Systems, though they do play on the Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy references (Vogons are an alien species in HHGTTG).

In all seriousness you should get WinRAR or 7-zip. Both are necessities for PC gaming especially for unofficial patches (like this?) and mods.
