    Use a center punch.

    Hit the punch with a hammer and look for the indent on the bottom side.

    Re: bolting to floor

    If you must just cut a small slit to put the punch through. You want a good solid mark and the carpet will probably have you swatting the punch too much to make it easy.

    Re: bolting to floor

    Why would you try from under the car when you need to know where to run bolts through from the inside? Just pull the carpet, look at the floorboard and remember its features (humps/depressions/etc) and get under the car and look for them. Then drill... I don't see why this should be a complicated process :P
