Flar Images

I once found a document on the web describing how to build partition flar images instead of having just the one large one.
I have managed this but am having problems extracting the subsequent flar archives.
I ahve built the system from a jumpstart server and now need to add the program images etc which are based on different partitions excluded from the OS archive.

can anyine help ????
