The apps aren't appearing in your app drawer?

If you open the market, then hit the menu button on your phone, you should see a "My Apps" button?

If you can not see the apps in the App drawer but can confirm that they are indeed installed on the device, then try the following,

Remove the battery from the device for 20 seconds and then check the app drawer, if this does not work then you may need to go a little deeper and perform a Factory Data Reset,

Menu > Privacy > Factory Data Reset ( Note: this will remove all data from the phones memory but will not touch a SIM card or Memory card.)

if u installed a widget or live wallpaper, touch the home screen and select widgets or live wallpaper.. what u installed should be there..

to double check if it really did install, go to settings -> applications -> a list of apps should appear, and what u installed should be there..

Just to throw in my two cents worth; the obvious one is make sure you have scrolled through all of the pages in the menu (I know it sounds simple but you would surprised). Secondly if you want to uninstall applications follow the steps provided by tanabe and when you tap on an application you have added you will get the option to uninstall it.
