RPM and tar.gz - need help


OS: Fedora Core 1

I have just ran the command:
rpm -ivh blackbox-0.65.0-fr1.i386.rpm

...from my cd-rom and it was "installed" successfully. But what to do now ? Where is the folder "blackbox-0.65.0" laying ?? Where is it extracted ?

This guide is for the file - "blackbox-0.65.0.tar.gz":

The binary to start it should be in /bin/blackbox then..
The folder containing other things should either be in /usr/local/share/, /usr/local/, or /usr/share/ as far as I know..

You could also cd to /usr and type 'find ./ | grep blackbox'..
