You can install .deb files with: dpkg --install foo.deb

(don't have SVGA driver - returned message at first time). So, I used
VGA16 driver during XF86Setup (second time), the setup program told me
successfully installed XF86 but it failed after I press ok to continue.
To install svga driver: apt-get install xserver-svga
For setting up X server you may want to run anXious.
