"/" tells `find` to start looking in the root directory.  "-name" option
tells `find` what filename to look for.  You can use wildcards, so you can
do something like:

   find / -name '*s*n*d*c*f*g'

to look for "sndconfig", "sndcfg", "soundcfg", "sondconfig"...  You can
also do regular expression search via the "-regex" option, too (but it
doesn't work too well for me -- check the man page for its querks.)
