On Ubuntu, is there any way to search for files on multiple hard disk partitions at once? I'd like to search the contents of all of my hard disk partitions at the same time.

I have a 320GB hard disk. I only use either ubuntu or kubuntu (12.04 for now). I don't want to use windows or any other dual boot os. And i need only 3 partitions on my hard disk. One for the OS and remaining two for data storage. I don't want to create swap also.
Now can i create all primary partitions on the hard disk. Are there any disadvantages in doing so.
First time posting after reading the forums for a long time, looking at posts from other HP-suffering would-be Ubuntu users.
I have a HP DV6 laptop with a 750GB HD, Intel i7 and 6GB RAM. I downloaded Ubuntu 64bit and started to install it on my laptop. First issue was that there are 4 primary partitions on the laptop hard disk.
Hi, I have installed ubuntu 12.04 on a pc formally running XP. The PC has two disk drives. The first was for the operating system and the second with two partitions for my music and photos. Ubuntu does not recognise the second hard disk and Gparted shows it as unallocated. The partitions do not show up. How do allocate and mount the partitions on my second disk.
I have two physical hard disks, one around 200GB and one 1TB. I had the large one splitted into 3 partitions around 300GB each. I used Windows XP.
Yesterday I formatted the small disk and installed Ubuntu 10.4 (trying not to mess with anything in the large disk).
Now from within Ubuntu I can see only the third partition of the large disk (referring as size 1TB).
My main workstation incorporates a mixture of ext3, ext4, and NTFS partitions scattered across a number of hard drives. Several of the ext4 partitions are encrypted, and I intend to encrypt the rest of the Linux partitions in the near future.
Im currently having a problem when trying to setup an unattended install of windows 7. When the hard drive has no partitions the install goes fine. However if the hard drive has any existing partitions, it throws up an error message saying it can't create new partitions. So I end up having to launch a live CD and delete the partitions before doing the unattended install.
