Question configuring command:locate and help creating database


Does anyone know where I can find helpful information with the command Locate? I am using SUSE 10.0. The word is too common when I perform searches and the man pages and UNIX books don't cover how to create a database. Thanks.

Code:
updatedb
as root

Thumbs up

I swear to you I tried that just yesterday and it failed. Today it seems to be working. I must have done something wrong. Thank you very much for the help.
