I just installed about 6 RPM'S and I can't see any of the files.  From the reading i'm doing it appears that linux has to run something called a "CRON" at 4:00pm daily.  Can I run this manually?

rpm -qa

will show you a full list of all rpm's installed on your system.

rpm -ql rpmnamehere

will show you a list of files for that rpm

crontab -l
will list all crontab entries

cron - is a scheduling deamon.
