    You may want to give a little more detail as to where you're getting stuck.

        So XBMC is 100% installed and working but you can't see the files?
        That's probably because you didn't index them and you didn't use a scraper

            In xbmc go to videos - files andr then add a media location. You then will be prompted to choose a scraper and scan the folder tree.

                    First of all, you need to either mount a NFS share or samba share or whatever, so that the files in your seedbox can be seen from other places. Then you need to add that mount point to XBMC, but I doubt it will play well from an internet seedbox to your home's PC.

                        It is not possible for XBMC to see inside the rars so..

                          I am not aware of any way XBMC can play RAR'd media files. I'm not sure that it would be possible.

                            Actually XBMC's video player can play rar archives, but they have to be uncompressed. You can't play them from your seedbox, you'll have to download the file to your local computer or network share.

                            XBMC is awesome by the way.
