Installing .apk without an SD card
I am new to Android. Any steps I'm finding to install non-Market applications involve an SD card, and any app installer applications I've tried seem to want an SD card, too. The Nexus S doesn't use SD, and moving .apk files to the USB storage volume via Mac OS' Finder doesn't seem to cut it.
But I came to these forums via Get the new Android Market on your new Nexus S | Android Central and that post's statement of, "Hit the Nexus S forums and you can grab the apk file, just install it like any other application." So I'd imagine it's easier than I'm making it.
Is there something I'm missing along the way? If someone can chime in with some tips I'll be much obliged.

The internal SD card or memory, can be used to put .apk files in your device.

I use Dropbox to install .apk files that I have downloaded on my computer. (I used to do this on my Nexus One too)
Install the Dropbox client on your Computer and the Dropbox App from the Android market on your phone. You can then just copy any apk files into your Dropbox and then open them directly on the phone.
