Set Command-F to search by 'Name Contains'

Whenever I try to find a file in Tiger, as I could with Panther's Command-F, I get too many results -- Spotlight shows me too many things I don't need. So every time I hit Command-F, I need to reconfigure the search options to find Name Contains. What a pain!

My thoughts exactly. Spotlight can be nice, but by and large it is fat and clunky. Changing the default Command-F behavior in Tiger was a Stupid Idea. Luckily it is as easy as changing the default_smart.plist file. Another great hint from Mac OS X Hints.
