    Some where on the PATH. /bin is a good place. If you install by Yast it will normally be placed in a common area. To see your current PATH type $PATH at the CL.

    gogal, this person is talking about software installed through wine, which is typically on a per user basis as it installs into ~/.wine

    in any case, there are many bit torrent applications for linux, you do not need to use wine and install utorrent, have you tried transmission, ktorrent, qttorrent, or anything else?

    download rate is only slower if you don't configure application properly, you should make sure DHT and PEX is enabled

    there is no way to get around moving things like that with wine, that is the way wine was designed to work

    run winecfg from the user account to install wine for that user. each user sets up their own wine environment. ie each user get his/her own C drive emulation

    Also you will get better performance from a native torrent client like ktorrent.
