you can do a rpm -ql <rpmname> to get a list of files that have been installed.

e.g. if rpm name is rsync-xxxxxx, type rpm -ql rsync

Or just open a console and type in the program name
eg
mozilla
rsync
or whatever

If it has installed correctly, the program will run.

To install an rpm,

#rpm -ivh <rpmname-xxx>

If it fails with dependency errors, you may need to install other rpms that are required.
