I like gnu emacs.  There is a nice emacs editing mode for octave
scripts.  Also, for those who like it, you can run octave within emacs
and get some emacs help in driving octave.

I am not sure how to answer this.  At some point you need to figure
out the filesystem and how to put stuff there.  Emacs can put files in
whatever directory you ask it to.
