    use konqueror

    goto your root filesystem (/ in the location bar)

    tools in the menu bar

    find files...

    check include subfolders

    is all 4 drives are mounted it will search them

    More linux like is:

    Type on the console

    Code:
    find / -name filenname
    "filenname" may contain wildcards. Blanks in filennames have to be escaped by \ since a non escaped blank means that the next filenname starts.

    BTW: It's not more linux like it's even faster and more flexible if you learn about regular expressions and piping.

    Greetings
