Question Location of install directorys (using rpm).

When I install using rpm, where will the program be located? For example when I install amsn.

Is there some default directory or something?

most of the times they will install to /usr/bin ... which i will almost guaruntee that that is
where amsn was installed if you used an rpm .. but it all depends on where the
the developer of the package specifies ...
