How to: Update the locate database in CentOS 5

I was curious after having to do this on a Fedora Core 4 box.  It is not the same. 

On CentOS run updatedb as root to update the locate database.  Handy if you just added a bunch libraries or programs and don't know where they got installed, mostly thanks to yum.
