I'm not sure what distro you are using except that it's rpm-based.  I no
longer use an rpm-based distro.  However, on my system (Gentoo) and I'm
pretty sure it was the same in Fedora Core when I used that, f-prot was
installed in /opt.  The executable is in /opt/f-prot/ If this is the
case on your system, you can either make sure that the /opt is in your
path or you can do what I did a create a symbolic link to the executable.

On my system, I changed directory to usr/bin, then typed:

ln -s /opt/f-prot/f-prot

You have to do this as root, of course.
