I recently upgraded myself, MacOS 8.6 also, and I can confirm that it
works. Perhaps your browser didn't complete its work when downloading
the file? Perhaps it's your MIME type to creator/type mapper.
"BINA/hDmp" sounds like "binary/hexdump" to me. So it's just some
anonymous, likely unassociated binary file.

Do you have Stuffit Expander? Dropping the downloaded file (which is
supposed to be a .bin file) on it, might expend it to the actual
installer, which is a program.
