please help newb!!
I've downloaded some .deb packages from http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool
but I haven't got a clue how to install them!!
Can anybody help?
The package manager program (synap something) only seems to let you add internet resources as repositories but I don't have a net connection yet.
I'm totally confused!
I already have the .deb files on my desktop, I just don't know what to do with them!

Usually you start a Root Terminal (Applications -> System Tools -> Root Terminal), then cd (change directory) over to where the file is and issue a sudo dpkg -i xxxxxxx.deb command, where xxxxxxx = name of file.
