I must doing something wrong with the file name search in leopard. Just as a test I decided to do a search for the Apache Web Server configuration file (httpd.conf). It "lives" in the /etc/httpd directory. So I click Cmd-Shift-F to bring up Finder's "find by name" window. I choose "Name":"is":httpd.conf and get 0 results. I also tried clicking File name and tried all kinds of other criteria (other than is). I tried searching *.conf. Heck, I tried all kinds of stuff with no luck. From what I read on macworld and macosxhints this should work. Can anyone shed any light on what I'm missing? Thx!
