aptitude in lenny: cmdline queueing of packages

In Aptitude, I can execute queued package modification orders (install,
remove, etc) by use of 'aptitude install', with no arguments.

How does one queue packages using only the command line? I'm looking to
duplicate the following sequence done in the curses UI:

sudo aptitude
/* browse package lists, find desired pkgs to install */

Standard information sources (README, usd/aptitude, etc) were no-go as
to getting the information.

Any pointers would be appreciated.
