Pan is very strong with binary news. 
  Choose your NZB file from a site like www.binsearch.info

then call Pan from a prompt 
   $pan -nzb file.nzb -o ./

it opens a window dedicated to this download with all the parts
listed in the NZB. You can eliminate some of the PAR2 parity files if you want.

Once all the desired PAR and rar parts are down, then do a parity check
   $par2 v filename.par2

I've got PAR2 here   http://www.tlviewer.org/centos/5/i386/repodata/repoview/par2-0-0.4-5.9.html

Now extract
   $unrar x filename..part01.rar

UNRAR is in rpmforge
