Searching by file name (as opposed to name and contents) in Lion

I have a "server" with OS X Lion and a shared hard disk, and some clients with various version of OS X (10.4 to 10.7).

When a client search for a file, I would like to limit the search to the file name and not the content of the files.

Is there a way to do this?

When you're in the Finder, hit Command + F. Notice under the Search: bar there's some options. Use the pulldown to select Name. Then set the next to Matches, Contains... and type in your search string.
