You chmod it, then run it like this:
chmod a+x filename.bin

Then run it:

This should extract an rpm to install with:
rpm -ivh filename.rpm

You might prefer the jres and the jsdks available from, I've seen a lot better performance from those builds than the RPM ones. The binary add-on on the front is so that you can agree to the sun license agreement.
