This is like if I download tar file and install apache, I can use prefix=/usr/local. I can find it later in the base dir /usr/local/apache. But if I use add/remove program to install apache, mysql, php on fedora6, where can I find their base dir? because fedora will download all the files automatically, where does it store all the rpm files in case to reuse it?

query your rpm db for the package
rpm -qa |grep -i yourpackage
rpm -ql "the package name returned"
that will list where it's all located on your system
