Well for starters you should RTFM! You need to download the LW plug-in which will import your mesh data. You can get that from the customer gateway - assuming you are a Realflow customer...

You don't have to be a Real Flow customer to download the LightWave plugin.

http://www.realflow.com/download/download_area/

Select "Connectivity Plugpins" and the type of plugin you want.

In Layout under Utilities, click "Master Plugins". Use the dropdown menu to select "Next Limit Manager". You should see "Next Limit Plug-in Manager v1.4.0". Double click that to open the Plugin.

Select the "Mesh Import" tab and "File Path" to load a RealFlow mesh sequence (.bin) or a .lwo sequence. Click add and you object sequence is loaded.
