Okay, this one is easy.....but I am a Linux newbie

I have downloaded Star Office to install....but can't figure out how to install it. I have a 90MB file called *.bin

So how do I extract it/install it?

Thanks

You might have to make it executable first...  
If the above suggestion by vainas doesn't work, type "chmod 755 yourfile.bin" first or just run it as "sh yourfile.bin" (either way).
