probably you'll find and icon on the menu in the internet stuff... I'm sure mandrake has a package management software, so just go to it and look for the files... but actually you don't need to know where it is... if it is aMSN just type amsn on the konsole, or right-button click and then "run program" (or stuff like that) and type the client's name (just like amsn). Usually the executables from installed software go to /usr/bin/ or /usr/local/bin
libraries /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib and so on...

I had aMSN installed and I could run it no problem from the Console, but I had changed to KMESS, I eventually found the file and everything is running sweet.

Thanks for your help.
