Hi there,

There is a few procedures you can follow to install a software. Depending on the OS you are working with, some are easier than others.

You can try the simple command, which tries to download from different website and install the package :
yum install staroffice 5.2
With a .bin file, you first must verify that you have the write to execute the file. You can change the permissions, with the command :
chmod 744 staroffice 5.2.bin
Once the permissions are set so you can execute this file, you need to :
./staroffice 5.2.bin
This should execute the file and install the package.

Hope this helps.
