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

Hi Gene, it has been so long since I got the instruction above, I cannot 
remember what the instruction would do.  When I entered the command, it 
simply switched to a new line with the # there, indicating I was still in 
root.  Is the reason I did not see any activity take place because the file 
is already in the computer?  Would it normally have installed the package?

I am going to man chmod before I continue this thought.  Later.
