In general, the answer is "anywhere".  For example, suppose you downloaded the extension airsnort.dsl while you were in Windows and placed it in drive C.  And suppose that when you boot to DSL the drive C is assigned as /dev/hda1.  The general procedure will involve mounting /dev/hda1, then executing "mydsl-load airsnort.dsl" from that mount point.

The specifics will be a matter of taste.  Some do this via emelfm, taking advantage of the preprogrammed mydsl button.  And some (like me) do it via XTerminal, so this is the specific procedure that I will list here.

Open an XTerminal and type "cat /etc/fstab".  Check for your actual partition name (/dev/hda1 for example) and its corresponding mount point (/mnt/hda1 for example).  Then type "mount /mnt/hda1", then "cd /mnt/hda1", then "ls" and check the listing for airsnort.dsl.  If it is there, then type "mydsl-load airsnort.dsl" and you are done.  If it is not there, check the other devices in the /etc/fstab.

He said embedded... it's different.
Embedded has a second "drive" called harddisk in the qemu directory - it mounts as hdb.  Save the files in there and make sure your dsl-windows.bat or has
mydsl=hdb at the end (between the quotes that say something like "qemu frugal quiet")
