=>Hello,
=>
=>  I am running Fedora Core 3 and downloaded a .bin file from a site that I 
=>trust.  The instructions that came with the file say to double click on the 
=>file.  When I do this, Fedora tells me that it doesn't know what to do with 
=>a .bin file but that the contents look like a shell script.  I then let's be 
=>browse for the right command to use to open a shell script file.  What's the 
=>right answer?

=>Thanks,

Typically, a bin file is a Microsoft executable and won't do you any good 
under Linux.

To check, run the file command on the .bin file.
