You have to "run" the .bin file, it's a shell-script wrapper that will
ask you to agree to a license before it unpacks the RPM, since RPM can't
handle stuff like that and corporate entities usually want/require that
crud.

One you run the file (type ./j2re...rom.bin), it'll pop up the agree in
a pager - hit the spacebar to go to the next page.  At the end, it'll
ask you to type in 'yes' or 'i agree' or something like that, then it
unpacks the .rpm (same name as the original file sans the .bin) which
you can then install.  I believe it'll setup everything for you then,
tho you may need to follow the symlinks as per the other response to
your message.
