How can I setup updatedb or slocate for my folders?

I want to use the locate command on my /home folder and other subfolders and I can’t make my way around the Dreamhost version, which is a debian running on a 2.4 kernel.

My suspicion is that this is a root-level activity as it’s using a system database, so standard users won’t be able to update it. What’s wrong with the ‘find’ command?
