Installing standalone linux programs
I've been slowly getting up to speed about using linux by trying Knoppix 3.4 on my laptop. I know that I can install programs thru RPMs, Debian Packages, make install etc. However, what do I do with standalone programs such as Azureus Bit Torrent client or overnet? Do I just leave them in a directory of my own choosing.. or is there a standard place to store applications like those?
Also, how do I set it up so that these programs start automatically on boot up?
