SharePoint 2007: pull list of site search query terms

I have a SharePoint website running under 2007 MOSS, that uses SharePoint Search as a global site search. I want to pull a list of query terms that users have searched for, along with whatever other data I can get (frequency of each term, etc). I have access to Central Administration and other server tools, including the SQL Server 2005 databases that hold the site data, but I'm not all that familiar with the SharePoint back end. Is there a (relatively) easy way to extract this information?

Edited to add: Microsoft's official instructions for this direct me to an area called "Site Collection Usage Reports" under Site Collection Administration. I don't have this option available, even from the top-level site settings menu. I know that Search is enabled, however.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Go to http://<ServerName:PortNumber>/ssp/admin/searchadministration.aspx
On the left Navigation bar, at the bottom you will see the report section.

This is assuming you have at least MOSS2007 SP1 Installed.

You're probably quite right, but I don't seem to have permissions get into the SSP admin panel for the application I'm trying to manage. I rather suspect the only one with access to that was the (laid off) network admin I inherited this mess from, who liked using his own (now-deleted) credentials for things instead of the sysadmin account. I have no clue what to do about that, but that is hardly your fault, so I'll accept your answer. Thanks for your help!

For your account issue, stsadm command line might contain the answer
Have a look at: http://www.wssdemo.com/Lists/stsadm/AllItems.aspx

Hope this helps though I never tried to change the SharePoint Admin Account...
