I think ive seen this done, its normally a "Search my site" kind of script.


I think I found what you may be looking for.

I havent tested it but it looks like it describes exactly what you want/need.

If you're on IIS and can do ASP script, AND Indexing Service is enabled, you should look into that. It's a pain to get set up, at first anyway, but it works very well once you get the kinks worked out. It can even do auto-highlighting of hit words, and relavency analysis... In fact, it's pretty advanced if you're willing to deal with it's extordinarly poor documentation (go figure...)

The most important thing (if you've read many of my previous posts... I seem to say this all the time), it's ALREADY installed on Windows 2000 (and later) by default. That means, IIS already knows how to deal with it, it's not some 3rd party peice of software sucking down yet more resources to do something that native software is already doing (like ColdFusion.. BLEH! :x ). It's already there, so you might as well make use of it.
