The _001 files extend the pre-existing archives like pak1.pk3 etc files
do in Quake III Arena. Instead of patching the original rfa files they
release a _001.rfa file which inludes new and modified files that
effectively "overwrite" those in the original rfa.

Hell if I know. Those were just there in the 0.39 patch. You shouldn't 
reference the .001 files in the maplist.con though. Maybe a mapper can 
explain what they're for..
