most programs will install to /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin. ocassionaly they'll be somewhere else, but it'll be in /usr. (i.e. /usr/local/games)
installing from source code will install to the same location as installing by rpm, but to my knowledge, there is no database to keep track of source installs for fedora. one way around this is to use a program called checkinstall. there are a few other posts dealing with the running of this app, but basically it'll build an rpm for you from the source after running ./configure & make.
