I downloaded the wine package I ran the rpm and everything seemed to work fine. But know I don't know where it is installed? where can I look for it?

probably located in /usr/bin
all you have to do is type wine to initiate it anyways...

Did you downloaded the binaries or the source code?
the rpm should tell you which packages are included.
just type rpm --help.

if you just simply type wine at the prompt, it should spit out the options that it can use, since you didn't give it any...
you should see something like ::
Usage: wine [options] [--] program_name [arguments]
The -- has to be used if you specify arguments (of the program)

--debugmsg name Turn debugging-messages on or off
--dll name Enable or disable built-in DLLs
--dosver x.xx DOS version to imitate (e.g. 6.22)
Only valid with --winver win31
--help,-h Show this help message
--managed Allow the window manager to manage created windows
--version,-v Display the Wine version
--winver Version to imitate (win95,win98,winme,nt351,nt40,win2k,winxp,win20,win30,win31)
--dt Defer trace until Alt+F12
--use-dos-cwd Used to set the DOS current working directory for the process (needs a path)
--cmdline Specifies the application's command line
if that doesn't show, then you didn't install and configure wine correctly....
