if its a bin file, just execute it as root.

as for rpm, read 'man rpm'

the basic syntax is "rpm -Uvh ./packagename.rpm" to install

since the above does not tell you anyhting... then i assume you have already followed it and installed a wine RPM.

to install half life.. slap the cd in.... then run the install program.
wine /mnt/cdrom/setup.exe

enjoy.
