You don't need to know where it got installed to (though it's likely /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin ) but rather simply type the name of the file to execute it:
downloadx OR if it's the app I'm thinking of the execute command is:
d4x

Cool

should be

mount -t vfat /dev/hda5 /mnt/scream

for the directory of downloadx

rpm -ql downloadx | less

should give you all the files installed w/the program. one of those is the executable. you could also try from a terminal to type

downloadx

and see if it starts.
good luck.

<edit>MasterC, got 2 posts in, i gotta learn to type. </edit>
