Angry How do I run a program?

Hi, I've just finished installing Mandrake 9.1
I installed a program called Kismet from an rpm(???????). It seems like it has installed something but how do I run it. There is no icon and I don't know what an executable looks like in Linux.

I would expect you to open a terminal window and simply type the name of the program.

HTH and Welcome to LQ!

To make an icon for it you can right-click on the desktop and at the top click creat new and then choose link to application. Choose your icon and name it and then under the execute tab type in kismet.
