      If you're on OS 10.4 or later, Spotlight works great for finding WP
      files - name, metadata and contents, as well if the file is in the
      Unix folder for use with SheepShaver, and even if the file has
      been moved from the Unix folder to the SS desktop - it's still
      accessible in OSX, in <Transfer Folder> / Desktop Folder.

      On the SS volume itself, though, the included QuickFind utility
      runs as fast as Spotlight, at least on the default 500 mb volume,
      and has several advantages, including ten Boolean search filters,
      including AND / OR options reminiscent of Google Advanced
      Web Search, size, creator/type, modification date, and regular
      expression search. File contents can be searched as well, using
      string or regex expressions. You can also set six default search
      areas, each as a button to click once you've entered search criteria.
      When a list of hits is returned, you can also search within that.
