well let's say that i want to find 'technology.doc' in 'Local Disc C:\', but don't want it to look in 'Other D:\' it's easy to do in Windows but how am i going to do this in linux?

Let's say that Local C:\ is / (root) and Other D:\ is '/mnt/other'...

a good way to figure out how to do that would be to look at the man page for 'find'
(man find)
