I downloaded BitCoin and installed the program, and it shows up in my C;/Program Files, but no where in there is a wallet.dat file. Does anyone know why?
If you r using win7 wallet.dat is located in users folder -> your account name -> AppData (NB! this is hidden folder) -> Roaming -> Bitcoin

Here's my method on my Mac:

1) Login to wallet on blockchain.org and turn off WiFi
2) Navigate to "Receive Money" and generate a new address
3) Navigate to "Import/Export" and print paper wallet
4) Logout of blockchain.org and turn WiFi back on

The newly generated address was created offline and blockchain.info will not keep it since it never synced (online).

What's the deal with online wallets.  How do I know which ones to trust?

I have opened an account with http://blockchain.info/ and the online wallet seems pretty good.

I think they have been around for a long time and they are quite trustable..

Another good option is https://instawallet.org, not sure about how safe it is though..

I hope this helps!

thanks for the post! Will certainly do this when I've obtained some BTC.
Just one question: how can the wallet receive BTC when it's not plugged in? If the linux USB isn;t booted, it isn't connected to the internet, so theoretically the BTC's won't be added to my balance, right? Or am I missing something here.
