With rpm -q -a you'll get a list of the installed rpm packages. With rpm -q <[beginning of] package name> you can see if a package is installed.

Check your running services with chkconfig --list. Read the man pages.

depending on what you're trying to do, the commands "ps aux" and "top" may be useful as well.
