How to create ASP.Net 2.0 autocomplete search box?

I have a search facility hat allows users to search articles by keywords entered as metadata (the uploader submits keywords to describe the article - like tutorial, C++, learn).  Is there a way to implement an autocomplete textbox (kinda like facebook)?

How might one accomplish this?
