locate command not present??


Hey...
I just installed RH 8.0, and the locate command is not present.
I first looked at red hat's site and found the findutils rpm, installed it, and locate still wasn't there.
I then went to gnu and found findutils-4.1.tar.gz, and tried installing that and all I can do is the normal find command...still no locate.

What am I doing wrong here? Is there another package to look for?

Thanks
