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

Thanks for pointing that out David. The binary that he wants to install 
is for the java runtime environment version 6 update 11. This becomes 
truncated to jre-6u11. Note the number 1 not the letter l. I think that 
this is part of Steven's problem. My suggestion would be for him to type

and then finish...

To be or not to be, that is the question
                2b || !2b
(0b10)*(0b1100010) || !(0b10)*(0b1100010)
        0b11000100 || !0b11000100
        0b11000100 || 0b00111011
        255, that is the answer.
