Oky-doky folks............. I am on FC3: went to Applications --> System Settings --> Add/Remove Programs

I typed in root password, and the box opened. I wanted to install the Engineering & Scientific packages so I checked the box and clicked update; I inserted cd 3, then I inserted cd 2. Next it said I needed to update them. I updated them through RedHat's up2date, then rebooted (just because). I log in, hit Applications, and can't find what I just d/l'led and installed!!!!!! I search for 'em. No findy!!!!!!!

Thanks in advance............

That's why you need to learn the terminal first, then the gui.

A fun little command is whereis

You could use it like this

Code:
whereis programname

Or the easier was is to just type the name of the program into the terminal. See if it runs.

I took a class but you can probally figure it out from any of those beginner books they have.

Once you know the basic commands the rest are easy to pick up.
