Rpm commands?

hi all, how do i get the commands from a rpm i just installed, while looking for a new mp3 player i found xine, it seemed to install fine but 'xine' is not the command to start it as it says in my book. I also tried MPlayer, but i have no idea what the commands are? how can i find them out so i can use them? thanks!, do i have to edit the path ver?

MPlayer = gmplayer to start the graphical version and mplayer with arguments to start in a console.

From the XINE website
Once you have everything set up, try something like gxine dvd:/ or xine -p dvd:/ to start dvd playback. Some frontend also offer so-called autoplay buttons or menu entries that start dvd playback immediately.

For xine you usually also need something like 'xine-ui' (user interface for xine). Install it and 'xine' command should appear.
