If you were loged in as a user, log in as that user and open a terminal and try
ls -a

comprookie2000 told you, in a terminal window. There should be an entry called "Terminal" in the menu for your desktop environment.

Try

$ ls .aMule/Incoming

to see what files are in there.

If you're using GNOME, then you can probably use Nautilus but I don't know if there's an option to show those hidden folders.

Nautilus is GNOME's file browser and yeah, you can get it to show hidden files (I just checked).

You can also change the path where aMule saves your finished downloaded and temp files. In aMule, go to "Options > Directories". And as suggested above, Nautilus can display hidden folders. Click on your "home" icon, then press "Ctrl + H" to see hidden folders. If you want it to _always_ display hidden folders, go to "Edit Menu > Preferences > Views Tab > Default View" and make sure that the checkbox "Show hidden and backup files" is checked.

I might also recommend you this Ubuntu Starter Guide. It's pretty neat and will help you with almost everything you will ever need
