If you have downloaded a .deb file to install other than from your  
standard repositories, the basic way to install it is "dpkg -i  
<file>". The downside is that you will have to install any  
dependencies (preferably using aptitude) yourself. dpkg will just  
refuse to install the other package properly until you have installed  
the dependencies. Note though, that the package you try to install  
won't be completely uninstalled either -- "dpkg --purge <packagename>"  
to do that.

You can also set up an archive on your filesystem and use file:// urls  
in your sources.list, but that is more complex.
