    Alright, a couple easy questions I'm sure...

    1.) I've installed a few apps that don't appear in the Applications folder after I've installed them. Do they go to another place by default?

    2.) I've installed Photoshop/Illustrator/Quark, etc. The photoshop application folder looks neat, with a little Photoshop picture, but the others do not look any different. Any reason why?

    3.) When I run (or try to) OnyX, it never works. It continually says "The application OnyX has unexpecantly quit." Any reason why it can't run properly?

    4.) I have a network set up with my roomates. Where do I go to set this up so we can share files?

    5.) I have the transparent dock program installed, and it works, but when I try to open it to change some options, it just says "There is no application specified to run the program ClearDock.ape." What program do I associate with this to get it running properly?

    6.) I've moved the icons on my desktop a few times, and each time I reboot, they are back to the default location. Any way to keep them moved?

    I'm sure I'll think of more. Thanks in advance.

    Depends, how were they installed? Drag & drop, installer?

    Not all apps use custom icons on folders. You can use any icon you want on one. Get info on it, click on the preview icon and paste a new one.

    3.) When I run (or try to) OnyX, it never works. It continually says "The application OnyX has unexpecantly quit." Any reason why it can't run properly?
    Could be anything...trash the prefs, re-install, repair permissions,etc...

    4.) I have a network set up with my roomates. Where do I go to set this up so we can share files?
    SystemPreferences/Sharing

    5.) I have the transparent dock program installed, and it works, but when I try to open it to change some options, it just says "There is no application specified to run the program ClearDock.ape." What program do I associate with this to get it running properly?
    Do you have APE Manager installed? Change ClearDock's settings in System Preferences.

    6.) I've moved the icons on my desktop a few times, and each time I reboot, they are back to the default location. Any way to keep them moved?
    Check your Finder view settings. Uncheck "Keep Arranged..."
