    What can I delete?
    I'm new to macs, just got a Macbook for christmas..and I'm lost.

    I'm downloading these .dmg files which go on my desktop and install things like Gumby and StuffItExpander, Azuerus, Yahoo messenger, etc.

    I'm a little confused as to what files I can delete, and how to install these files permanently. Can I delete the .dmg files once I install these programs? Is installation as easy as dragging the .dmg file into the applications folder?

    When I try to delete the .dmg files after dragging them into the applications folder, it says they are still in use. What can I do? Am I not installing them right? What should I do with these files instead of leaving them on my desktop?

    Any and all tips are appreciated, thanks.
