Ahh. You're using Red Hat.

The ethereal tarball builds two executables: a text-mode one called
tethereal, and the GUI binary called ethereal.

Red Hat packages them in two RPMs -- the ethereal package installs only
tethereal (!!??) and the ethereal-gnome package installs ethereal.

It's not a service in any case.

Install the ethereal-gnome package if you want the GUI version. If you
installed gnome when you installed the system, it should be easy. If you
chose KDE you may find a boatload of dependencies.
