How do I install a .bin. I downloaded a Java plugin needed to run some tests by the isp.

I just did as you said.  This is the first time I changed to root.  It scared 
me a bit, because I haven't worked in root much.  I am mostly scared because 
I do not have confidence I know the correct address for the .bin.  It is on 
my desktop, so if I enter:
chmod a+x /home/steven/Desktop/jre-6u11-linux-i586.bin   have I typed in the 
correct address.  Also, My desktop has a capital D.

I am pausing here, because I know I can really screw things up if my command 
is not right.
