    The dock is for often used programs INap, not folders... see that little line just to the left of the trash can, if your gona put something on the doc, be be sure to put it to the LEFT of that line, otherwise you get a big puff of smoke...

    The left side is for apps, the right side is for folders. The sidebar in Finder is like the dock, you can't drag stuff out of it and into something else. It just goes poof as you've discovered
