You could try os.walk (search for "walk" here:
http://docs.python.org/lib/os-file-dir.html) and then loop the results
to find the file (sure there are some out of the box methods for this
but right now I don't know any).
One thing I'm not sure if you want to search for a word within the file
or if the submitted word matches the name of the file. My suggestion
should work for the last option.
