Yeah definitely do it, it's only a few bucks and not doing it will effectively half-waste the oil change you just did, costing you the same if not more money in the end. Even though I use synthetic, I change my oil and filter every 5k miles, regular oil I did every 3k. Having fresh oil is one of the very best things you can do for your engine, don't skimp just to save a few $$.
allmotor_integ, I couldn't find the filter for the life of me the first time either, I felt really stupid once I did though. Wow, how much you learn in just a couple years....
