Can't figure out how to run files after install


I'm trying to get my laptop up and running with linux, but I can't for the life of me get the wifi card to work. Research has pointed me to downloading either ndiswrapper or linuxant. Since I'm still a pretty big newbie, I decided to go with linuxant's trial while I get used to linux. Anyhow, linuxant came as an RPM, so I opened it and it went through the install. However, I can't figure out how to open the program now. I'e never made it past this point in Linux, so if anyone could help me out, I'd be really happy.

Thanks!

In whatever directory it installed the RPM to there should be a readme file. It should tell you how to set it up.

Well, I can't even find where it installed the RPM. I'm using Mandrake 10.1, if that helps. Where's the default install directory?
