Question downloaded package off web. install not in tree


I downloaded the kernel-image-2.6.15.K7 package off the web. I am currently running the Knoppix 4.0 live DVD on my machine. I have chrooted into my system and have copied the .deb file into my home folder. I cannot figure out how to tell apt or any other program where the package is and to install it.

Could some one please help me install this kernel. My system will not boot on its own at the moment. I have some experience with chrooting and plenty with command line but it has been a little while since I have worked with it in Debian. (I have Gentoo on my laptop)

Thx
Damon
