This is a REALLY newbie question...
See, I have installed the Fedora Core 5 as an alternative system to WinXP.
BUT: in my (Windows-based) mind, programs can be installed anywhere across the various file-systems. As a default, Win installs them in C:\Windows\Programs\..., but I am used to arranging them more rationally, when on installing programs ask me.
In a Linux system, I cannot understand "where" packages are installed (on the disk).
For example, I have installed the Opera browser package. Everything has been carried out properly, but I just can't find the new Opera directory with the executable file. As a consequence, I am not able to manage installations, not create icons on the desktop with the right address.
Can anybody please clarify this? Thank you!
