Commands used to search with:

find
locate
whereis

You can view the man pages on how to use them by typing, man and then the command name.

Good luck and Ask away if you run into any problems.

if you have installed the rpm package then

#rpm -qa <package name >

or if you want to use wild characters (not sure what is the name of the package ) try

#rpm -qa | grep <name >
