that instruction was for a script.
you should probably stick with .rpm files for now.
and use your package manager.

it could be anywhere, but you probably mean, where is
it in the menu? programs don't usually get put in the
desktop menus when you install stuff. depending on
your linux version, the menus may be updated at boot
time.

you can open a terminal on the desktop, and type the
name of the executable. lw? limewire? lwire?
i don't know what it is.
