If u r Linux expert, simply try to get answer ur Q by typing in terminal as:
however, q - stands for Query and
a - stands for All like query all installed packages.
This command is more powerful if u pass this like:
rpm -qa | grep vsftpd

Assuming you are attempting to find out if you have the Very Secure FTP Daemon installed, you want:
rpm -qa | grep vsftp
rpm -qa will show you all installed RPMs, piping it through grep will limit the list to RPMs containing the string "vsftp".
