joomla search and category dropdown

Is there a way to allow a user to either search through all of the categories for a particular page or allow the user to select a category from a dropdown and narrow the search to the dropdown selection? First, what table would contain the categories that I need to search through? Can I plug into any existing search capabilities joomla currently has? Are there any plugins that already provide this functionality? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for a search just like this site in the upper top area of site: http://www.michaels.com/
This reminds me of Google customized searches combined with a drop-down form, so maybe needs a little coding for the presentation. Go for it if that is what you want. I am not aware of a Joomla extension that does that out of the box.
what kind of a query would I need to go through the categories.
