You do not need to download the packages; apt does that for you.
/etc/apt/sources.list should have a reasonable default that you can work
from. Either way, here is mine:
deb ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/hurd/debian unstable main
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian unstable main
deb-src http://http.us.debian.org/debian unstable main
Then `man apt-get' should give you the details. Here is a quick overview:
# apt-get update
# apt-get install package
