Installing DEB package offline

I have a dial up link at home which is painfully slow (i cant even get my modem configured right so it actually doesnt work at all) but i have a high speed link at school. I downloaded some deb packages at school and put them on my usb disk (audacity1.2.3.deb). I dont know how to get it to install though. Internet is not an option.

Is there any way to install the packages i download at school, and bring home on a usb disk, on my system without an internet connection??

Im using Ubuntu 5.04
