problem finding vmware after install..

I've installed vmware server on fedora 8, using the rpm package from the vmware website, install went without a problem, but after installed, there's no icon on the desktop or under any menu, but I open the add remove program and it's showing as could I get the app started?

You probably have to open up a terminal and type or something. Just start typing vmware and then hit tab and see if something like that comes up. You have to configure the program before you run it.
