Locate Spotlight Files

Spotlight in Leopard is great for finding files but once you found it how do you know where it lives on your hard disk. All you need to do is move the mouse cursor over the result in the Spotlight results and a window will pop-up will and display the path to the file you selected. If you would like to have Finder open the location for you then just hold down Command + Shift and click on the Spotlight search results and a new Finder window will open right up and show you the folder the file is in.
