This question is more appropriate to the "Debian User" mailing list
(MFT set accordingly).

You probably want to install the "alien" utility. The description
from its manpage:

"alien is a program that converts between Red Hat rpm, Debian deb,
Stampede slp, Slackware tgz, and Solaris pkg file formats. If you
want to use a package from another linux distribution than the one
you have installed on your system, you can use alien to convert it
to your preferred package format and install it. It also supports
LSB packages."
