Thumbs up installing a .bin file ?

I would really appreciate it if someone could enlighten me as to how to unpack or install a file with the extension .bin?

$chmod +x filename.bin
$./filename.bin (or $sh filename.bin)
If installing globally you may need to switch to root using "su" before doing the second step.
