Alternative to FP2003 search bot

I have created a web iste for a friend of mine who lives on a different continent (so I cant get to beat the ISP on the head) and it is hosted by an ISP who does not use/want/intend to load FP extensions.

Hence, none of those nice friendly bots work!

Does anyone have advice on how to include a simple alternative to the search bot? Have tried an applet from the web, but it keeps crashing IE when using it!

Help and directions would be much appreciated

Is it being hosted on Windows or PHP?  There are a lot of free PHP search scripts that you could use, or I have an ASP search script as well

I understand its PHP, but cant even get that from the ISP! If I FTP to the site, it does tell me that its host type is UNIX.

Will your stuff run as part of FP?

Thanx for the response

Then more than likely it is PHP.  You might do a search for a for a PHP script here: http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Search_Engines/index.html

Or you might consider Atomz:  http://www.atomz.com/applications/search/trial.htm

Or even: http://www.frontlook.com/flsse/sse.asp - has both a PHP & an ASP version

My program is ASP - it will not run on UNIX.

Atomz is pretty good - I used to use it myself.  I have also heard great things about the frontlook program.
