A .bin file is usually executable, so you would just run it. This exact question was asked about a week ago, so if you would like more details you may want to try the search feature.

In a nutshell if you can't find it:

At command prompt:

# chmod 777 so-5.2-ga-bin-en.bin
# ./so-5.2-ga-bin-en.bin

It should then start a graphical login, you'll think your installing a file within windows. Sun really made it easy for anyone to install.

And make sure your doing this in X windows terminal screen. And another thing, I guessed at the name of StarOffice file name up there, I can't remember if that is exactly how they spell or named it but close, you'll just have to go with yours, that is just an examble to go by.
