I always use admin/by-module after installing a new module.  It gives 
the list of administrative actions for the modules.  Find your module 
and take care of the administration from there.  Having a menu block 
for Admin By Module might be nice, then you don't lose the visibility 
as you do when you click the administrative link on the admin/by-module
