Angry .bin help BAD!!!!!!!

Ok, guys. I've tryed every possible method of utilizing .bin files on Mandrake Linux 9.0 and NOTHING WORKS! It either does absolutely nothing when I type (./filename, etc, etc) or says invalid host. This is very frustrating as I cannot install ANY programs. If anybody could give me a solution that works on Mandrake , it would be much appreciated.


P.S. I don't think this has anything to do with it but I run WinXP Pro on a seperate partition -

Thanks Guys!
