Some newbie questions


I've installed Mandrake 10.1 Community edition. When I install programs like Acrobat Reader, KPlayer, and so on, where do those programs reside and how do I link them with the corresponding files that work with them? Also, in the KDE menu, is there a way to copy a program directly to the desktop? Tried right-clicking to look for "copy" and it's not there. Thanks.
