I'm not too sure, but I think this should work.

You would need to ssh in and make sure that samba is setup so that you can put a file somewhere on the smoothwalls hdd. Put the rpm/tgz file on to the harddisk and then ssh back in to install it.

Obviously, if ssh is not installed/working then the above will be somewhat more difficult, but there should be the option to either telnet, or more likely, ssh in to the box from the web-browsers interface.
