There are tons of mini search engine scripts on the web... you can get a large list of a lot of them at http://www.cgi-resources.com/Programs_and_Scripts/Perl/Searching/Searching_Your_Web_Site/

If the files that you want to be searchable are on the same server that allows CGI, I suggest you get either the Matt Wright's Simple Search at http://www.worldwidemart.com/scripts/search.shtml or Fluid Dynamics' Advanced Search at http://www.xav.com/scripts/search/

If the files that you want to be searchable are on a server which does not allow CGI but you do have CGI access (like the search feature for my GeoCities website) you can download Xavatoria at http://www.xav.com/scripts/xavatoria/ and index your files offline then just have the script search the index and return the links to the other server. If you need to do it this way, tell me and I will explain it to you (it takes a while to explain :-)
