Can't find my Xmule installation

Yesterday I migrated from Windows XP to Mandrake 9.1, and hopefully the move will be a permanent one. I was pretty savvy with Windows, but got fed up with the constant virus and trojan infection that life on a broadband connection brings.

So, I'm a complete Newbie with Linux, and well aware that it's not all point and click on this platform. To save face, I searched high and low for the answer to the following question, as I'm pretty sure there's a simple one, but I haven't been able to find it.

So here goes:

Yesterday I found an RPM package of Xmule on the web, downloaded, and it seemed to install OK, as there were no error messages, and an 'installation complete' dialogue followed. "Great", I thought, "time for some mp3s". But I can't find the program in any of the menus. Does anyone know where I might find it? If I need to type a command to get it running, as I suspect is the case, what would I type?

Thank you for your patience, and please excuse my abject naiivity!

I think that the command is 'xmule'.
You can check where it is installed using a command like below
rpm -ql xmule
It shows all files included into (installed) package xmule. There should be also executable name ending with ...'bin/xmule'. To make a shorter list, with only files that have 'bin' in their path or name (others are libraries, configuration files and so on) use
rpm -ql|grep bin
It takes the result of the previous command and shows only lines where it can find 'bin'. The executable file should be easy to find here.

The full localization of the executable may be useful. Why? To add it to menu. You can do it using MenuDrake. You can run it from the menu (Configuration ->Others-> MenuDrake) or run 'menudrake' from teh console. The program is quite easy to use.
