I just had a quick question about how to check what files are installed where where do they installed in my system after I installed a rpm package?

Which packages are installed:
rpm -qa |less
Is the package gaim installed
rpm -qa | grep gaim
Where is gaimed installed

rpm -qil gaim
for instance to see where gaim installed itself ;)

If you want to check before installing the package, add the -p flag.
This will print a list of all files in the package:
rpm -qlp redhat-artwork-0.99-1.i386.rpm
You can do this to urls as well.

The key here is the --list, or -l option. Adding that to any query lists the files.
