directly installing a deb package

I've downloaded a .deb package from the net and want to install it. How do I
tell apt-get that I'm giving it a direct file name rather than having it
looking at the places in sources.list? The package is sitting in /tmp at the
moment, and I've tried adding file:/tmp to sources.list, but still no luck - I
think it's adding things like stable or main to the path.
