    You can install it from CUI. Just open a terminal and type this:
    Code:
    chmod +x file.bin
    ./file.bin
    The installation will then start.

    Where the installed files goes depends on which .bin installer it is, however in many cases it will ask where to install.

    If you want a system-wide install, do this before typing the above commands:
    Code:
    su -
    password&#58; <enter password>

    HI
    also try before using chmod command this:
    $file example.bin
    u can determine whether it is executable or not, if not then it is a cd image.
    cheers

    Although this thread is closed, it seems to be generating plenty of interest. The solution to this documented much better here:
