Finding HD directories in Terminal

Trying to play some Z files in Terminal. I'm running a shell front-end called Cathode. I can run Cathode, however,I can't seem to find the directory with the z files in it.
I'm using a macbook pro, and jumped into Terminal enabling root user. However, I still couldn't find the directory with these games. I figured that I probably installed this folder in the wrong place -the applications folder. Enabling the root user is probably a no no for someone like me, so I disabled it and thought I'd talk to you guys!
I know when you install software in OSX, you're given the option of installing it on your hard drive or applications folder. I typically install on my applications folder, however. I have this z folder in my applications folder but probably should have them on my HD. Again, new to this whole Terminal thing, but it sure would be cool to be able to cd my way to this folder once I find it. Does this make any sense at all?
Thanks for reading, and for your patience

Also, your Applications folder IS on your HD.
Vansmith, does that work in Cathode? Haven't played with it in a while.Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!
