Well, it'd help if you'd say what database you are using. :P

Search engines are pretty much SELECT - LIKE queries. Example:

SELECT * FROM table WHERE fieldcontent LIKE '%input%'

input is the variable or whatever thing you want to look for.

I used sql server full-text for a web site search that I built.  It was pretty easy to set up...  I think that you need to be on enterprise version of sql2K (supported on win2K and 2003, but not on xp pro for some reason).  the sql server help on full-text indexing and searches is pretty good.  I used the CONTAINS keyword for my stored procedure, to which I passed the user input.  I did have some trouble with ignored words - you see, sql server ignores things like a, an, at - the users were entering stuff like this and I had to trap an error the popped up if they only put in ignored words.  You can also create an agent job to rebuilt your f/t indexes at whatever frequency is appropriate

Let me know if you need more detail
