try typing the name of the program in a termal window
Go to the directory where it's biniary is installed open a terminal window and ./nameofbiniary
./ executes a file
Easier still, use the Find option in your Gnome menu to search for the file, then see if you can double-click it to run it from the results window.
Make a note of where you found it, and add a menu item and/or panel button to make it easier to dial up.Stand up and be counted as a Linux user!
I'm using KDE, so I can't swear exactly how Gnome does it.
Try right clicking the Gnome start button. there should
be an option to edit the menus. Choose to add a new
item. It will give you a dialog. The critical field will be
"command". I'm betting your command is /usr/bin/antidialer
