just type the name of the program in and hit enter... packages like realplayer are seldom well integrated into menus and such as they are made by a third party in a one-size-fits-all manner. but the binary is probably called "realplay" or "RealPlayer" or something. if you run "rpm -ql <realplayerpackagenamehere>" then you'll see all the files it contained. note that the package name is NOT the file name... "myprogram-1.23-4.i386.rpm" may be a file name, but the package would be "myprogram" (or "myprogram-1.23-4" or a few other combinations would also proabbly work)

The command to start RealPlayer is usually "realplay". If you installed using the rpm from the RealPlayer or HelixPlayer sites, the installation directory should be /usr/local/RealPlayer.

You can always "look" in the RPM to find out what/where it is installing with "rpm -ql rpm_name". That's Q for query and L for list. And, replace rpm_name with whatever the name of the RPM is...

Code:
$ rpm -ql RealPlayer

If you are looking specific'ly for the executable binary, you can usually add " | grep bin" to the end of the command...

Code:
$ rpm -ql firefox | grep bin
/usr/bin/firefox
/usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.10/firefox-bin
/usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.10/libgtkxtbin.so
/usr/lib/firefox-2.0.0.10/res/html/gopher-binary.gif
