    apt-get to install a local package.

    I'm trying not to have to use the internet each and everytime I want to install a program, in this case Scite.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install scite
    So I used:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install -download scite
    and saved the file it downloaded. But I cant seem to get it to load from the local disk. I've tried:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install scite_1.66-1_i386.deb
    sudo apt-get install ./scite_1.66-1_i386.deb
    sudo apt-get install /mnt/hda1/scite_1.66-1_i386.deb
    sudo apt-get install scite_1.66-1_i386
    sudo apt-get install ./scite_1.66-1_i386
    sudo apt-get install /mnt/hda1/scite_1.66-1_i386
    sudo apt-get install scite
    sudo apt-get install ./scite
    sudo apt-get install /mnt/hda1/scite
    all to no avail. What boneheaded thing am I missing?!

    My company do not allow me to install anything on my harddisk which runs on Windows XP. I have to use Yahoo Messenger to communicate with my oversea family. Therefore, Iwish to run the Knoppix Live CD without Harddisk.

    Can anyone help me on the following:

    1. I have downloaded the messenger package. How to install the program on knoppix live CD and how to save the installation + setting?
