Frustrated about Linux's zip apps!

Well, I've been downloading files from the net that has a multiple split zip archive. ( .z01, .z02, zip, etc...) And I just found out that CentOS / RHEL has a limit when unzipping files greater than 4Gb!

I tried 'yum install p7zip' but still, no luck. 

There's also a blog entry with his workaround...

#cat file.z01 file.z02 >>

#7za e

but, still FAIL. Dang... I can't imagine that it would be this complicated just to extract a file.

I ended up extracting to my Win 7 desktop. boo!

If you have any solutions, please post. ("\(^____^)/")
