Tells me what Stephen said.  "ls" tells me the file does have execute 
permissions.  "file" tells me it really is an executable.  And I think 
it tells me the problem;  I assume you're running it on a 32-bit linux 
machine?  The executable is for a 64-bit machine.  When I try running a 
64-bit binary under 32-bit ubuntu, it says "Exec format error. Binary 
file not executable."
