[erlang-questions] trouble getting application to load

So I installed erlang from EPEL on a centos machine. I can't seem to get
odbc to work on it though. I get:
12> application:start(odbc).
{error,{"no such file or directory","odbc.app"}}

# locate odbc.app

and other applications load fine
1> application:load(mnesia).
2> application:load(xmerl).

I don't understand how application:load works. How does it know where to
look for these .app files?
Thanks for any help,
