As long as the 'whatever.sty' file is in the path for TeX (for example, if you
put it in your working directory) you can put the following in the

\usepackage{whatever}

You must input this as a LaTeX command in LyX and not as text! I think
that LyX does this automatically in its preamble section but it is a
while since I used LyX.

Hope this help,

Kapil.
