FTS is not installed by default in Express Advanced. You should confirm that you actually selected to install it from the feature list. You can do this by running the maintenence mode from Add/Remove Programs.
Make sure you have downloaded and installed SQL Server 2008 Express with Advanced Services, if you have just installed SQL Server 2008 Express or SQL Server 2008 Express with Management Tools then you will not have Full-Text Search.

Full-Text is only available as part of SQL Server 2008 Express  with Advanced Services
