cannot find files or directories

Could someone tell me why which and whereis cannot find a program
which has just been installed?

I just installed xCHM. If I go to the menu editor I find the name of
the program without a path (presumably because it can find the file in

the path).

But, I have a couple of chm files in an additional hard disk mounted
as /usr3, and neither xCHM nor firefox can see this.
( I tested ff by going to file --> open, and the directory does not appear).


I tried running updatedb after the install, but the program is still
not locate-able with either 'which' or 'whereis' ...

What am I missing?
