if that doesnt workk trying doing a search using find

find / | grep "ethereal" >> Found

then just take a look in that file. Also your program could be in either /usr/bin /usr/local/bin or /opt/bin .. etc. Make sure the directory is in your path.

You can check your path my typing "echo $PATH"

Hi guys

Typing ethereal does nothing. I even cd into the path and did it.  The RPM installed without errors.

  I did a "find" for it and outputted it into the file FOUND.
I did a  cat FOUND and this is what was displayed:

The executable installed by the ethereal package is tethereal (for text mode ethereal). If you want the Gui interface you need to install the ethereal-gnome package, which you execute with the ethereal command.

and since its in /usr/sbin/  i think only root should be able to run it.

Yep, running tethereal or ethereal requires root privs since the interface must be opened in promiscous mode. The executable could be installed anywhere, but the convention is to place root type things in /sbin or /usr/sbin.
