See the section 2.4 of the manual.

Boot sectors and .com programs are all made using the binary output format (I suppose this is the "BIN" you are talking about) with a little help of "org" directive, while the .exe programs are executables in MZ format.

Current filetypes you can have are

COM executable (DOS)
naked binary (same as above, really, but could be used for your own OS..boot raw code from a disk)
MZ exe (DOS program also)
PE exe (Windows95 through Windows Server 2003 program)
ELF (Linux and UNIX programs)

I can think of a few other executable file formats, but two of them are not for anything that runs on an x86 and the others are
Ones that work on x86 OSes are
a.out (some UNIXes---I take it an older format--just use ELF instead)--NOT to be confused with the common name of "a.out" given to UNIX programs when compiled without a specific name

NE (Windows3.11 and below and also OS/2)
LE (Windows95 device drivers)

Still, you can program for any of the other x86 executable file formats that you want to, using FASM. The thing is, you'll need to have intimite knowledge of the executable file format, and output the raw bytes where needed (might want to make yourself a template to use for all other times after this) and you'll need to choose the raw binary form of assemblage.

Not only Win32 drivers, Linear Executables (with name "LX") was introduced with OS/2 (and are format of 32-bit OS/2 programs).
