What binary file is it? If it's an executable, you can
usually run it with

	% ./filename.bin

where "filename.bin" is the exact name of the file. Note
that it needs to have the executable attribute, i. e.

	% chmod +x filename.bin

could be needed.

On the other hand: If the .bin file is an image file for
USB or optical media, you would typically dd it onto the
USB stick or use a program like cdrecord or growisofs to
burn it to optical media.

The command

	% file filename.bin

will probably provide more information about _what_ the
binary file actually is.
