If you installed the rpms you're off to a good start. You just need to know the names of the packages. With luck the programmes will end up in your menu system and you'll be able to run them from your desktop.
You could try opening a terminal (the icon looks like a TV screen) and running the name of the programme:
You install a programme called hackme.rpm. Open a command line and type hackme.
If this doesn't work type 'man hackme' (leave out the quotes!) to read the manual.
It's worth saying that most programmes depend on other software, so in our example hackme might need a library called libhackme.rpm and something to make the graphics work properly: qthackme-devel.rpm ...
Tip: If the programme you installed doesn't immediately appear in your desktop menu, try logging out and back in again. It's dirty but it should work, and it saves long explanations about adding stuff to your menu.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

What fingal is saying is that all of your programs on Linux can be accessed by this command line. You need to have a terminal (window icon) open. From there, you can type-in all the command for programs to run. On top of that, you can run a certain file with this program. For example : "emacs filename.something" into a terminal window will open the file "filename.something" with the program "emacs".
And that's the power of Linux.
