Sure.  From MSDN:

<quote>
To prevent the full-text index from becoming bloated, noise-words (words that are too common to expedite the search, such as "a,"and,"the," and "therefore") are ignored. Noise-word lists for many languages are available in the directory \Mssql\Ftdata\Sqlserver\Config. And the set of supported languages is growing. The choice of a particular noise-word list is based on the language of the material that is file-format dependent during the filtering process. Some files set the language per section or paragraph; some specify it for the entire document. These noise-word lists should be sufficient for most operations, but they can be modified. Administrators can use a regular text editor to modify the contents of a list. For example, a computer company can add the word "computer" to its noise-word list.

It does not explicitly say it, but I suspect you have to re-populate the full text search.

I just confirmed it, you need to re-populate the full-text search catalogs, before any change to the noise-word file takes effect.

Dan,

Could you take a second look.  Not to "blow my own trumpet", but I believe I gave the correct answer.
