to install programs you can either:
*download it on your host pc, scp it to the freerunner and install it
*connect the FR to the internet (usb/wifi/bluetooth...) and opkg
install something
*connect the FR to the internet and use the graphical UI that is
included in some distro's like 2008.x

a very easy way is to set up usb networking
ssh into your FR,
take a look at for example,
and copy paste the code to install something in the terminal when
shh'd into the freerunner
