Pretty much all burning packages will unpack and burn this onto disk seamlessly for you without needing a separate "unpacking" stage.  But if you want to open it use 7-Zip or WinRAR, do you have the matching .cue file?

Agreeing with the above comment 7-zip is my favorite. Once installed just right click the .bin and extract to the same location. You can then drag the files to your CD-ROM and burn it. Also on a side note .bin files will be extracted simply by dragging them from their .bin containers (or into your CD-ROM).

Is it a binary file and not a disk image at all?  Is there a .cue file with it?

If you're certain that the .bin file is an image of a disk then create a cue file for it using this trick

Bear in mind that other types of file use the .bin extension.
