I'd like to be able to find packets, in Ethereal, containing specific text
For example, if I'm checking a mail server, I'd like to search for "USER1"

How can I do this?

http://ngrep.sourceforge.net/ would be a far better tool than ethereal in your circumstances.

thanks!  ngrep did the job
wanted to keep it in Ethereal (it is part of a set of labs for instructional content I'm developing)
Might try to work with the Ethereal SDK to program something that does this.
