    I can't seem to find any documentation as to where the rpms for mysql install everything. I'm new to linux, so maybe there's a good place to find this sort of documentation that I don't know about..?

    Try looking in /usr/local/bin/, that's the most common location for the client executable; the daemon (service) is usually at /usr/local/libexec/mysqld, while the libraries will install in /usr/local/lib/mysql/

    Again, I don't know if it's always this way. Try doing a "locate mysql" from the command prompt. (also "whereis mysql")

    In Linux, whenever you are wondering about something try entering "man {subject}". For example "man mysql" will bring up a manual on mysql (escape it by hitting "q").
    http://www.mysql.com has a complete online searchable manual.
