Ok. Download and install via synaptic the applications "lxsplit" and "pypar2".

Both are command line programs.  After you download the split files, be they
video, rar'ed directories or whatever, enter terminal mode in the directory in 
you saved the files.  To join the multiple files, ie.:  xxxxx.avi.001 through 
enter the command #lxsplit -j xxxxx.avi.001 and hit return.   This will quickly 
join all the
parts and create xxxxx.avi.   The filetype can be whatever is called for in the 
it could be rar, zip, avi, or whatever, as long as the filetype is followed by 
the .00x.

When you downloaded the set of files, you should always include the .par2 file. 
worry about the par2 vol files yet.

Click on check, then just below that, click the par2 file interface, using that 
to select the directory
and par2 file for the joined file.  Below that box click the button 'verify' 
then at the bottom click "GO"
When finished, pypar2 will tell you if any repair blocks are needed.  If none 
are needed, you are done.

If it tells you that 10 blocks are needed, go back to pan and download the par2 
that includes 10 blocks.

it will start with 0+1, 1+2, 3+4, 7+8, etc.  In this case you would download 
the 7+8 file, as it would
include 10 blocks.

Once downloaded, back to pypar2 that you hopefully did not close.  this time 
click the Repair(files)
and go again.  

This should hopefully correct the errors/missing parts.
