there should be a ReadMe file in the Opera folder

if it's anything like netscape or mozilla then you need to cd to the opera folder and either
make install

or run an installer script

i got the rpm (am also using mdk9.1) and it installed and works perfectly

Did you do it as root?
There is no readme, but there is a binary in the package.
