how do I use "add/remove software" to install a program from flash drive?

I'm attempting to add a few games to my Eee PC with no luck.  According to the "Add/Remove Software" 

application it's supposed to be possible from a flash drive.  I can't seem to make it work... Please help!

If you are using a debian based distro it may be a little difficult because apt-get expects a specific structure in all mirror locations, in which lacking that structure causes it to reject the location. If you are only wanting to install packages from the flash drive it may be easier to just open then with synaptic which will start the installation.
