it depends on which program you are installing.
e.g
I install emacs rpm:
->executable goes to /usr/bin
->libraries go to /usr/lib
you can check that if you use a package manager looking at the files that will be installed with each package.
e. g
select a package to install and check description and files.

Hope this helps.

I get it for the most part but could someone give me an overview of how the whole rpm system works?
