Finding installed programs KDE

I'm new to linux, and I just installed Red Hat linux 9. I chose the scientific applications package. It was supposed to include gnumeric, some linear algebra programs, octave, bc, etc. I can't find any of it. I've tried the menus in KDE, but I can't find anything. I tried a file search with kfind, but nothing showed up. Is there a place where all those non-kde programs are kept. Thank you!!

Does bringing up a console and typing the name of any of your missing programs work? If it does, then KDE just doesn't have any build in shortcuts, you'll have to make them. If not...then you don't have the programs in question.
