All the contract deployment tutorials I have seen instruct me to deploy the via my eth.accounts[0] or some other address belonging to my nodes account list. The code in the last step generally is (don't mind the improper syntax)

var test = testcontract.new("teststring",{ from: eth.accounts[0], data: "0x" + testOutput.contracts.bin, gas: 300000}});

I wish to use an external address in the from field, whose private key I have generated separately without any involvment with the in node wallet. I cannot find any material which helps me with. How can I do that?
