Linux Newby Help please

I got a copy of Suse linux 8.2 for Xmas which installed with out a hitch.
I have 2 hard drives 20 and 80 gb with 10 gb reserved for Linux
Yast has installed a few games and editors which all work fine off the installation disks.
Can some one help me with the following please.

1. How do I look at partions on my hard drives so I can access my photos etc

2. How do I load and install programs (linux progs) witch I have downloaded with windows.

3. I notice that the downloads have a .rpm .gz extensions presumably these are zipped files. and will need unpacking.

4. Can any one point me to a site where I can get some info other than the basics of Bash
