Hello.

1st of all, you really shouldn't use the installer. Instead, you should use the RPM.

What you should do now, I guess, is that you should delete all files created by the installer and then install the RPM. However, as I haven't tried the installer my self, I can't tell you where to look for the files. One thing that might help to locate the files, is that if the installer asked you to specify the installation location, then you will probably find the files there...

I'm sorry that I can't help you more with this...
