What is the name of the program. Try starting a console and entering the name of the program, it may run.

You can use the rpm command to find out the contents of a rpm-file :
'rpm -qlp filename.rpm | less '

The application you'll want to run is usually the one found in the "bin" subdirectory.

"rpm -ql package-name | more" will list everything in that package -- reading the docs if it has them is suggested then.

Lightbulb word to the wise

Do yourself a favour and grab a matching set of kdeadmin kdeadmin-kpackage and libskdeadmin-kpackage (if you have a complete MAIN rpm source you should be set)
when you have a problem of this type use Kpackage to open the rpm and look at the file list
you would be looking for the file in /bin/ or /sbin/ or */?bin/

Oh and a dirty lilttle secret most of the time the ftp site Main media is a lot more than either the DVD or CD Main? has. other than thats about it
