Add the remote using `git remote add ...`, then use `git fetch <name
of remote>` to get the changesets, and then just check out the branch
you want using `git checkout --track <name of remote branch>`.

You should find this information easily in any online git tutorial,
e.g. here http://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Branching-Remote-Branches
