Can't remove opera...rpm says not installed


I'm using fedora core 3 and the latest opera (opera-8.0) is acting up. I tried to rpm -e it and rpm said it wasn't installed. I then did find / -name opera and removed everything it found. Now when I try to rpm opera7.4 it says opera-8.0 is there and won't don anything. Help please.

Code:
rpm -qa |grep opera
to see the name of the package
and then
Code:
rpm -e <package-name>

Thanks for the reply. I used apt-get remove opera to be done with it.

That is actually the same thing. Apt uses the rpm command when dealing with packages.
