downloaded programs will go wherever you told them to go

installed programs will *usually* be on your path, so you should just be abel to run it from a console. if not use the "whereis" and "locate" to find out where it's gone.

usually by default if you don't specify a location when you download it will be in your users home directory..

run: rpm -qa | grep qtella
That will tell you the name of the package you have installed.
Then run: rpm -ql <qtella package>
to see a list of the files it installed.
