Question how can I check wich applications are allready installed ?

the question:

I need to install some programms (like openoffice and a pdf reader of some sort)
but I want to check first wether or not they are allready installed, how do I do that?
how do I check what apps are installed? is there a command for that ?

extra info:
I am a big newbie in linux, just got a new job and the server is "linux freebsd" with a graphical interface on it xfce.
normally I wouldn't use this machine to work on (because I don't want to overload the server) but I don't have another machine at my disposal

tnx for your replies

FreeBSD is not linux. You just try posting in the FreeBSD forum. Anyhow, to list packages look into 'pkg_info'.
