why don't you just copy the files over and then use dpkg. that would be the easiest, then once they are installed you can just delete them, from your /home/.

The reason i want to use apt on this disk is.
I got it of a friend and it has a sh*t load of stuff.
I want to use apt so when i install something it will install dependencies as well.
