Your user directory would be a good place to start. iPhoto stores everything in the Pictures folder, either in its own iPhoto folder or in a series of sub folders organized by date (i.e. 2009/02/24/*.jpg) if I remember correctly. When searching for files, you should specify the folder(s) to look in, and have it search your user directory.

There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.
