Installing OpenSSH is more difficult than using it. You either have to
get root access, and then do sudo apt-get install ssh in Terminal, or
you have to enable the Red Pill mode of the application installer, and
then you can install ssh from the application manager.  The whole
procedure is described here: http://maemo.org/maemowiki/InstallSsh2006

BTW If you figure out how to use Dropbear, please update that page.

You can always do dpkg -L dropbear (or whatever the package name) to see
what files it has installed.  Look for files in /usr/bin/

Professionalism has no place in art, and hacking is art.  Software Engineering
might be science; but that's not what I do.  I'm a hacker, not an engineer.
