Ok, I just installed Red Hat 9 last week and I want to know how exactly I install something. Through the GUI i know I can click on an RMP and it installes. However, how do I control the directory it installs to? I've installed Netscape, Netbeans, and a couple of other applications so far and I haven't been able to find where the heck they installed! Any help is appreciated.
Also, what passes for an executable file on Linux? I've been able to see that "rpm" is an install file and "sh" is like a "bat" file. (I think>) Does anyone know anything that can help?
