    I'm not very familiar with Xandros but I do know that it relies on the APT packaging system. If you're already aware of apt, then you can disregard this. Otherwise, take a look at this, which seems to describe how to get Debian packages in Xandros. Again, excuse my lack of familiarity with Xandros--but I figured a bad response is probably better than none at all.

    Basically, you say you're downloading packages. You should never have to manually download a package if it's part of the Debian or Xandros repository. The distribution, especially one like Xandros, will have some sort of packaging utility available.

    well if it is a .bin it is installed
    Code:
    ./program_name.bin
    The fact that there is a deb in there shouldn't matter
