installing .deb program


HI All.
I have a couple of questions. I have knoppix live on cd can I install and use netzero lindows.deb. This is netzero sorftware for linux.
How do I. Or should I just install debian sarge on HD then install netzero lindows.deb? I'm used to the install button in windows. Its ben years since I installed a dos program.
Thanks
D.E. Felt

usually you can use dpkg -i packagename.deb

But the easier way in Debian is to use the apt-get program.

apt-get install thepackage

use "apt-cache search" to find things i.e

apt-cache search flash

to find all packages that have flash in there names, and mention flash in there descriptions.

There are also package managers like synaptic or kpackage that are more gui based.
