Problems with a .bin file, trying to install starOffice, Fedora Core 1


I am trying to install the StarOffice 7 suite (using Fedora Core 1) and am not getting too far because of a .bin file that i seem unable to execute. the file name is so-7-ga-bin-linux-en.bin.
anyone know what to do with it?

have you tried

./so-7-ga-bin-linux-en.bin

if that doesn't work, then you need to make it executable

chmod u+x so-7-ga-bin-linux-en-.bin

then

./so-7-ga-bin-linux-en.bin

good luck.
