You will find it on the bottom tank of the radiator, most times it is on the same side as the filler neck, there is a keyed special socket to loosen it if it is rusted shut, you can buy the tool cheap from any parts store.

How do i flush the radator

The correct way would be to use a flushing machine to keep from polluting the ground or storm drains.
You could remove the lower hose and run water thru the radiator from the radiator cap or overflow tank.

at the bottom of the radator at one of the corners useally the left side there is what is called a petcock, turn that counter clock wise and the radator will start to drain, open the radator cap and it will go alot faster.
