Question SuSE 9.3: yast installs rpm's to which dir?

i just dowloaded the java 1.5 sdk (the jdk**.rpm.bin version) and installed it from the hd with yast.

1. is it correct, that i have no choice in which dir to install new software, using yast in this fashion?

2. how do i know where the software lies after installation? is this determined by the rpm or by my system config?

I have installed it two days ago in the directory of my choice.

to 1.: Yes!
to 2.: It is determined by the rpm. You can list the files and their destination by 'rpm -ql <package>', or by using konqueror (has a 'files' tab when you click on the rpm).
