    Not a single one? That's odd. Go to your Market/settings/downloads and see if you can see them in there.

    Some apps don't show in the App Tray - can you list them for us ?

    Also if you search those same apps again in the Market or go to "downloads" in the Market it should say "installed" for the applications in question.

    You can also go to settings/applications/manage applications on your device and see your installed applications

    This may sound crazy but, try a reboot and see if that helps.

    Reboot just means to power off/on

    What applications are they ?

    As I said some apps do not have an icon associated with it in the app drawer
