How do I install .run packages in debian?

Thanks,

You should read the link below..
http://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary

Using the drivers from ATI/AMD wont be updated automatically when you update your system. It is better to used the packaged fglrx drivers, as shown in the wiki.

To answer your question, you need to make the file executable, and execute it.
Code:
# chmod +x ati-driver-installer-11-7-x86.x86_64.run
# ./ati-driver-installer-11-7-x86.x86_64.run

After giving execute permissions,am able to run the file now.
Also,the link suggested by you is quite useful.
