Gerard, as you are a member of this lsb-discuss list, could you forward
to this guy the solution to his "users" problem "when i install a
package where the files are installed ?", on RedHat...

  rpm -qpl <path/to/PackageName>

If the path is a ftp or http url, then the rpm header files are
downloaded and queried.  Another good one to remember is...

  man rpm

Maybe this could help him be less bored with Gnu/Linux.  Viva GPL!
