Can hardly understand what you're asking.

If you have a problem, post a COMPLETE description, along with any relevant error message(s), what you're doing/did when you got it, what kind of hardware, etc. Saying "can't install", tells us nothing...saying "debian" tells us little (what VERSION of debian?).

I assume you downloaded it from here:
http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads
so you should have got a package which ends with *.deb.
Say:
virtualbox-4.0_4.0.6-71344~Debian~squeeze_i386.deb
which you can install with
Code:
dpkg -i virtualbox-4.0_4.0.6-71344~Debian~squeeze_i386.deb
and if dependencies are missing you follow with an
Code:
apt-get install -f
or with
gdebi
which will solve the dependencies automatically.


I think there is a better option:
If you scroll down a bit you will find advice how to install by adding a repository:
Code:
deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian squeeze contrib non-free
into /etc/apt/sources.list
run:
Code:
wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
and install it with apt-get, aptitude, synaptic... like usual.
Better double-check that at the site from VirtualBox.
Good luck.
