if you installed the src rpm, then you will need to compile the source before anything is actually installed (you know - the whole ./configure, make, make install type deal)... you will probably find it in /usr/src/RPM/SOURCES or something like that...

however the xscreensaver package is on the mandrake 9.1 CD - why don't you just use that?
