Question Run CBT extracted from .rar files


I recently extracted a CBT file (rar format)

Issue (My OS is Redhat EL 5)

1. I was able to unrar,(rarlinux-3.6.0.tar.gz) after unraring, it has created a file as follows.

[LINUX].Linux.CBT.Bash.Shell.Scripting-DDUiSO.bin

NOW THE POINT IS HOW TO VIEW AND RUN ON LINUX EL 5.

CAN YOU PLEASE HELP.

Regards

To view, open it with a text editor.
To execute, right click - go to preferences, and make sure that "allow execution" is checked. Or: from the command line type: chmod +x [LINUX]...
To execute it, simply type the full location of the binary. If you are in the directory, that would be ./ for "this direcrtory" followed by the filename. If execution is enabled, you can also double-click it in your file-manager and choose "run"

I'm wondering if that was a legal download. Looking for information on Linux CBT I found this site:
http://www.linuxcbt.com

I think that you have only the data file that their program uses to display the video and interact with the user. If it were a cdrom image the file command would have said so. If it were a flash or vnc capture, I think the file command would have printed that as well.
