    how to start app

    i just used the rpm command
    rpm -ivh filename for installing a package
    called antidialer for dialing into my isp...

    Rpm also shows that the package is installed well.
    The question is how do i start the app??

    i dont find any shortcuts in the Gnome panel and its sub menus!!

    How can i start it.. how can i find it.

    Those "* for dummies" books dont really help. I've read one long time ago and didnt learn a thing from it. I mean that everything was obvious and you can learn it by yourself. They teach you how take a mouse, move cursor over an icon, then use your finger to press left mouse button. I would sugges you to get more proffesional books like "SUSE 10 Unleashed" and "SUSE Linux Bible". After reading them you will feel in Linux as at home

    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
