newly installed programs...

I'm using Mandrake 9.1 w/ KDE and when I install programs they don't show up right away in the K menu, instead appearing almost randomly. Why is this, and/or how do I fix it so they show up right away?

In KDE, if you right click on your desktop (or click the file menu - ) and click "Add new > link to application..." and link to the program that way.

Thats the way I found to work, but don't know if it's the right way!

Okay, but here's a newbie response... when you install programs, where do they install to?

I install via right-clicking on the rpm file and selecting 'installer'. It tells me if any dependencies are needed (and gets them), then says installed successfully. But I don't know what the install path is to find the executable.

Or better yet, what's the linux version of 'C:\program files\...'

thanks for your help
