Mechanism for Storing Installation Files in RHEL 5


When we install a package (RPM) in RHEL 5, where do the installation files get stored in? I find it easy to do that in Windows wherein I can easily locate an installed package and its files in "C:\program files\" group. So, what is the mechanism used by RHEL for installing files in folders?

The rpm file itself(the one you are installing) has instructions on where each part it installs needs to go. Once all the parts are installed where they need to be the rpm itself(in a default install) is deleted(this behavior can be changed).
