uninstalling software in redhat 8.0


When I uninstall software with rpm -e I only delete the program from the database but do not physicaly remove it from the harddisk.
Due to various dependencies created when a program is installed, I can't remember by myself what exactly I ought to delete.
The question is whether there is such a program which manages this for me.

Thanx to everyone.

Normally, "rpm -e" will remove the files. You can do an "rpm -ql <package name>" before you uninstall, to see which files will be removed, then go see if they were really removed.
