Hi everyone

When using nano to edit my /etc/gdm/gdm.conf file, how do I quickly and
easily find text? The file is rather large, and ctrl F doesn't work as it
does in gedit. I have also checked through the menus by hitting alt F, and
not found a find option. 


Sorry for the questions, but once I have root enabled, things should go much
more smoothly for me.
