.bin needs to be changed to its correct extension. read the README.TXT in the ftp's directories where you got it,
and tar.gz is first uncompressed then untarred.
'man tar'
'man gzip'

Run ./your.bin in the terminal to run a bin file.

AutOPSY: You don't need to change the extension (not that the extension matters at all).

beejayzed is right, you just run:
$ ./whatever.bin
in a terminal, and it'll work. Don't forget to make it executable if it's not already, thought:
$ chmod +x ./whatever.bin
