command to run a program

Hey, I think this may be a candidate for stupidest question ever, but here goes...

Running SUSE 9.1, and installed the firefox 0.9.3 browser;


1) What is the shell command to run firefox?


2) can I run firefox from KDE (my windows browser)? What file do I have to click on to get this program to run?

At a command-line, you should be able to start the browser by typing: firefox

I don't use KDE myself, but I imagine there's a "run command" option somewhere. You could use that until someone else comes along to tell you how to add it to the menu or to create a launcher...
