Your question is very general.
Assuming you are using IA, just adding a new build target for Linux should be enough provided you are not doing any windows specific activities.
Are you facing any specific issues on Linux platform?

1) After copying the archive (zip/tar) you may use one of the 3 available expand archive actions.
2) You may expand the archive your self into a folder and try install SpeedFolder action.

Step 1) Change the permission of install.bin to 555.
chmod 555 install.bin

Step 2) If you want the GUI mode Set the DISPLAY
Make sure that a X-windows server is running on your IP (It can a windows system)
export DISPLAY=:0.0

or

You may run the installer in silent mode if your installer supports it (check the documentation on how to run in silent mode)

Step 3) In the cmd prompt (ksh/csh) execute this cmd
./install.bin

Since you are getting no JVM error, you have to bundle JVM with your installer.
You need to bundle an appropriate VM based on the OS and version.
If you do not have the VM, you may download it from the following site.

Check the VM packs tab.

In case you haven't done it, you should check IA's help: running a shell command inside the setup is one of the basic and built-in actions.
