Others will show you how to configure Windows Search. I'm just butting in because this little free program is also nice to use: Everything Search
It only works for NTFS partitions. But the neat thing is it is hooked into the NTFS journaling(file system tracking used to make sure operations completed) system. Therefore it doesn't need to index your files. It doesn't sit there churning your HD looking at every file. When NTFS file system makes a change, it just hooks the notification and adds it. Way smarter!
Plus it works the same on Vista, Windows7, XP so you don't have to remember which Windows flavor has which quirk. Just use Everything on all of them.
