From the directory in which you downloaded the file, just run "sh LimeWireLinux.bin" . Sh is the program that will execute the binary file. If this doesn't work, you can make the file executable with the command "chmod +x LimeWireLinux.bin" and then run it with "./LimeWireLinux.bin" this will install LimeWire (as far as i remember) into your homedirectory in which you can run it from.

you need to open a terminal window.

In the terminal window, you first change directories to the location you downloaded the file to ... then you type:

sh LimeWireLinux.bin

(and follow the other instructions in duende's post if necessary).

To get to a terminal window depends on which GUI you use (usually gnome or kde) ... but either way it is normally on the menu under applications and then system tools.
