.bin file extracting problem

I downloaded one .bin file from internet.
when i try to extrat that i am getting the foloowing error
ca someone help me out.
sharief@sharief-desktop:~/Desktop$ ./arm-2009q3-67-arm-none-linux-gnueabi.bin 
The installer has detected that your system uses the dash shell
as /bin/sh.  This shell is not supported by the installer.
You can work around this problem by changing /bin/sh to be a
symbolic link to a supported shell such as bash.
For example, on Ubuntu systems, execute this shell command:
   % sudo dpkg-reconfigure -plow dash
   Install as /bin/sh? No
Please refer to the Getting Started guide for more information,
or contact CodeSourcery Support for assistance.
