How to install wheel bearing/hub assembly?

Hi Guys,

Since buying a press early this year I've successfully changed quite a number of wheel bearings but i'm just about to do my first hub assembly with the bearing already fitted (as per link below).

My question is, how do I press this type of bearing into the steering knuckle? I fear that if I just press it in I will damage the bearing as normally It would be pressed on the outer race?

thanks in advance,
