|all the cool kids use|
Code Sample find / -name <whatever>
Code Sample locate <whatever> (requires gnu-utils.dsl)
But cooler adults put 2>/dev/null after find to filter out all the proc shite, and locate needs updatedb ran every time you want to find a new file, and it pigs down resources.
Gtkfind is a great tool, it makes complex searches easy, and it would ease suffering when newbies first come to dsl. I can think of worse things to do with 28k. It's not a half bad suggestion at all.
