you need server side scripting for this.
What languages does your web server support- PHP, Perl, ASP etc?

In response to cheekycj comments: Just because its not your server doesn't mean that you can't run server side scripts ex. CGI scripts. Find out if you can run CGI scripts on your website if not you will probably want to run Javascript like I suggested earlier. Good Luck

Actually- only server side Javascript can do directory searches (and XOOM does not offer SSJS and hardly any ISP does) but client side scripting like the ones at javascripts.com will not be able to accomplish this.

Say this is your original image tag :
<img src="graphics/nava_oren.jgp" width=50 height=80 border=0 alt="nava_oren">

add this : id="oren" inside the tag.

This is your new tag :
<img src="graphics/nava_oren.jgp" width=24 height=25 border=0 alt="nava_oren" id="oren">

That`s all, use any search engine you want.

There are many free third-party search engines for your site,
if you need some links, contact me : http:host-tribune.com/assistant/assistant.htm
