If you do
# rpm -qa | grep <mpg123>

This should find the rpm you installed. Then use:

# rpm -ql <the package you installed without the .rpm> | grep bin

This will give you the location of the binaries the rpm installed.

cd to that location and try:
# ./mpg123

or whatever its called.

Also for anyone else reading this and taking it into consideration on installing packages, you don't have to run it with the options separated with - (dashes) but this would work:

rpm -ivh <filename.rpm>
