The problems you describe are consistent with your Linux installation 
not supporting a.out executables.

You will need support for a.out executables in your Linux kernel in order
to run Mathematica for Linux, which is an a.out format executable. 

If you require any further help with this I suggest that you contact
Wolfram Research Technical Support (support at wolfram.com) directly,

I hope this helps.
