First you need to identify in what form those rar files get extracted. As far as i guess it should be in ISO form. First Identify that. And then i will be able to help you.

That's not possible. You have to extract files on windows and burn them on CDs then you can use these CD's to install linux.

Probably your files are not rar format.They may be iso files with winrar icon.
If you have iso files and your filesystem is fat32 then you can install linux from your hard drive.But again you need to burn one boot CD.

That's true start WinRar and in options->settings->integration remove the iso support!
Then with a CD Burning app burn the iso images to CD's for an example in Nero do:
Recorder->Burn Image; locate the iso's and burn them :)
