    Okay, I thought this would be so much easier. I knew how to do it in Tiger, but now, I don't know how to search in a specific folder in Leopard. When I try to do a search, it only lets me choose "This Mac" or "geoffmyers" (my home folder). How do I search in a specific folder? Thanks! :)

    Go to the specific folder that you want to search in and the the "home" option will be that folder.

    If you navigate to the folder you are trying to search and then use the search field in the upper right hand corner of the Finder window, it gives you an option to just search that folder.
