Search this list - Form web part - MOSS 2007

I want to draw more attention to the "Search This List" search box on some of my form library's.

I see that I can add a form web part to a page and directly above my list view or dataview.
Is it possible to configure the form web part to do the the same thing as the "Search this list" box?

PS.. Since I use a search center scope as my primary scope, it is always on the top right of my master page on every page.  This unfortunately makes the user click the down arrow to see "search this list"

Any advice?

The form view web part does not offer this functionality.

You can create a delegate control to replace the out of the box search box, so your search this list - is the top item, or create your own search web part.

Thanks, I'll check this out. I don't have VS yet.  Do you know if there is an equal SPD solution?
What if I added a form tag in a CEWP?
The all I would really need is the Formaction URL. Could it be that easy?
