Few ways of doing this

1. Locate command
This is this easiest why of finding files but it uses a databases which much be updated with
Code:
 updatedb
Code:
 Locate filename
2. Using the find command
This is the most powerful way of finding files, the find command will allow you to search in every way possible

Code:
 find / -name filename
This is very simple example, the find command is very powerful and do anything including deleting, copying and truncating files.
