installing bin file

hello, I am trying to install Poseidon for UML on fedora core 5. I downloaded an installation file called PoseidonCE_4_1_2_JRE_Installer.bin but I don't know how to install from here. There aren't instructions from the site that I can find. Can someone tell me what to do??

You should execute the .bin file from the command line. If you get a permission error, then you need to add executable permission to the file. You can do this with chmod u+x PoseidonCE_4_1_2_JRE_Installer.bin
