George has a good point, it is helpful to better define one's specific
implementation. At the same time he has answered the question.
I use the Fedora distro and now know how to proceed with apt.
My thanks to George.

It's helpful if you provide a little more information. Which
distribution are you using? Do you already have apt loaded and you
want to automate its use or do you need to install it?
Apt is the package manager for the Debian distribution, but it has
been ported to other distributions such as Fedora. If you are using
Fedora Core and have followed Jarod's guide, you should already have
apt installed. If you are using another distribution, apt may not run
on that distribution or it may have perfectly a useful package
managers that work as well as apt.
If you happen to be using Fedora Core, go to Axel's web site
www.atrpms.net and follow the instructions there for the version of
Fedora that you are using (you should look for the "kickstart"
package). DO NOT do this if you are using another distribution.
