    You can actually just create a new site using the search template and your back in business.  

    from the site cllection homepage, site actions, create site, create your page name it Search , for url call it SearchCenter and under template, enterprise use the search center with tabs answer the additonal questiosn about user pemissions and if you want the top link bar  pick yes
