There's nothing quite like 'Program Files' in linux. The binaries for many things you'd install would go to /usr/bin, the config files and other data would go to /etc and /usr/share, and docs would go to /usr/share/doc ... but you wouldn't delete these files manually, you'd use the package manager, which in fedora is yum. Isn't there an 'add/remove software' in your menu?
