How can I install apps I've downloaded to a cd in Ubuntu 9.10? I'm a complete Ubuntu novice so please be specific and give me a detailed answer.

This is not always the case but usually if you go to the repository and double click on the unzipped/un-rar'ed file it will just install.

If it gets deeper than that then I'm lost as well without seeking help ;)

Um... which "apps"? Downloaded from where? "Uunzipped app"... was it "zip compressed" (instead of .tar.gz or bz2)?

Questions, questions, I know... but knowing a bit more would – mayhaps – lead into a simpler solution (finding a "double click to install" .deb package or a repository).
