package installation in Xandros

Where are you seeing this "cannot find package" error? Xandros is based on Debian, so you will need to use the DEB package, not the RPM. From a command line, while logged in as root, issue this command (replacing nameOfYourPackage with the actual DEB):
dpkg -i nameOfYourPackage.debRegistered Linux user #270181
