Which strange place? By default, it should go to ~/.cabal/bin, I think.
Anyway, you should add that to your path, put something like

if [ -z `/bin/echo ${PATH} | /usr/bin/grep cabal` ]
    export PATH="/home/andrew/.cabal/bin:$PATH"

in your .bashrc

Not really, you'll need to install external libraries (C stuff, mostly) for 
many packages. But it should be a lot easier than on Windows.
