You use the forge installer then go onto the account to configure it. Then, get the download for Optifine and put it in the mods section.

Optifine and forged are currently uncompilable, last I checked, Optifine is only working with magic launcher

It's impossible to install minecraft forge with optifine on 1.6.2. There's also no need, because minecraft 1.6.2 seems to be able to support hd texture packs anyway.

I've tried it before, and it did not work.

You have to unzip the optifine then move the classes into minecraft.jar

Forge and Optifine are incompatible in 1.6.2. And 1.7 is soon so don't worry about it too much :D
