Installing Mac OSX bin in mandrake 9.1

I'm attempting to goto the launch website and viewing streaming movies, and I've downloaded netscape 7.1 on my mandrake 9.1 box, however, I also need windows media player installed in order to view the movies, now there is a Mac OSX .bin installer file that I can choose from at the microsoft media player website and I know that mac osx runs on BSD, is there a way for me to run this file, or port it to mandrake linux in order for me to enjoy the sites on the internet that I can't normally without windows media... again bill gates tightens his grip on me... grrrrr.
