In Debian and all derivatives I know of,

    aptitude install octave2.9-emacsen


    aptitude install octave2.1-emacsen ## or apt-get, if you will.

should do the trick. These precise packages might not have trickled
down to Ubuntu yet, but they should be there for Florid Fish or
whatever it's called now.

And if you're using a non-APT distro or if you don't have root
privileges and can't be bothered to pester your sysadmin, I guess
you'll have to download the Emacs octave-mode elisp files yourself,
bytecompile them, and put them in the right directory for your Emacs
to find them. They should come with instructions for this.
