    That usually means the files haven't finished downloading completely (or they're corrupt)

    Those are parts of a multi-file (split) compression. Make sure you have all the associated parts downloaded, then double-click on the rar.001 and they will all be uncompressed into the original file.

    ...or StuffIt Expander. I can't recall if Mac OS X's built-in compression utility can open .rar files or not.

    It doesn't,
    UnrarX or Stuffit Expander will expand those files to your desktop or wherever the file is located. I prefer Stuffit Expander, comes with more options. and its simpler.

    It cannot. But thankfully there are a few good free apps out there that can.

    You should download Split & Concat to handle these files. You will want to concatenate them (ie. reassemble the rar file). You can get it here:
