    Default I need help please


    I am using Suse 11 and love it

    My question is that I have a total of 4 hard drives installed on
    computer

    How do I search all 4 hard drives for certain file or files ?

    Where is the search function ?

    Thank you very much

    Happy Holidays

    John

    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

    Sorry?! Oh, lol why? There is no newbie question! Just a less
    experienced user, it isn't problem.

    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

    Erik
