What do the instructions say?

THe red is probably positive.  THe black is probably negative.

They yellow is probably a sense wire from the radio/cd, so the amp is not on unless the radio/cd is on.  It might be pos. to turn on or it might be ground to turn on, I don't know since I don't have your amp. and instructions in front of me.

Instruction says I have to connect it to radio, and that's it...
It's better to try ground first, right?
And... does it need to be connected all the time or just a moment?

A modern radio should have a terminal called "amp sense" or something like that.  It turns the amp on and off.  It should be connected all the time.
