OK!!!!!!!!!!!!
If I am understanding you correctly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You want to install Slackware, but don't have a cd burner?
What do .bin files have to do with this? What exactly did you download?
If you can't burn CDs, do you have a disk drive? Slackware can just as easily be installed by creating a partition, downloading the packages, into the same directories as on the server, and using that partition as the installation source. You then just have to download and write the boot and root disks.

Or you could just order the CDs.

If this isn't the answer to your question, perhaps you could try asking the question in some sort of coherent manner that someone can actually understand.

just curious, from where do you get the slackware image in .bin format??

as masomn said, if you are totally newbie, just order the CD from slackware official store or other vendor. it will save your time.....

if you DL a ".bin" (a binary file) and not a ".iso" (a cd image) what you have is a binary file and you need to open a terminal and cd to the dir that it is located and you need to change the permissions if the .bin file to make it executable by using the command "chmod" http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ticle&artid=20 and then use "./filename.bin" that will install that binary package.
Now I'm not sure what that package is but thats what I have to do with almost every binary file I DL

AHH What the HHEECCKK............????

Well if it's a binary file why would you have to burn it? If you want to put it on another box just FTP or DL it from that box, this is'nt a difficult process.
But it can be
Here's the same issue (almost)>>> http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...04/10/3/144714
and another http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...04/10/3/171907

I think you guys are talking 2 different types of bin files (dont know which the OP means though), 1 can be natively executed under linux, one is a similar image format to .iso (.bin usually comes with a .cue for burning)

Either way you might be able to mount the .bin with the mount -o loop command if you're talking an image.

or follow chemichaels instructions if it's a linux binary.

Try this:

Code:
# chmod a+x file-name.bin
# sh ./fine-name.bin
or just

Code:
# /fine-name.bin

Got it from here. It's likely that you are dealing with a compressed file, so be sure you are in a directory that you can browse to.

He is talking about a Counter-strike server.
Here is what you are looking for:
www[dot]vadakill[dot]com/nsguides/linux/steam_ns_30.php

The bin file is just some compressed version of an installer for the server files, that is my guess. Read that tutorial through that I gave you the link to, it is pretty easy to follow.
