Where did my program go?

I just tried top install the Smart Boot Loader rpm to make a boot diskette. I left clicked the rpm in Manndrake 10.0, chose an option to install the rpm, got a window telling me of a dependency issue which was automatically resolved and the window closed again. Presumably the program got installed, but it's gone and I can't find it anywhere. It's not under the start button, and I've tried every conceivable lettercombination to invoke it from the command-line. What am I missing?

If you partially know the name of the rpm.

If you know partially the name of the rpm you just installed do a search for it and display the files.

Example to display files associated with an rpm with bzip in its name.

rpm -qa | grep -i bzip | xargs rpm -ql
