How to search in Sharepoint for terms only inside of documents in a doc library? (not the document properties)

I'm trying to perform a search in Sharepoint but only on the content that exists within the documents in a document library.  I do not want the search query to search the metadata or properties of the document or doc library.

How can I make the search only search within docs in my library?

Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback.  I failed to mention that other search queries still need to be able to search all the attributes of the doc library.  So, if I uncheck then it can't be searched in any search query.

Have any other ideas?

1 way is to use advanced search and simple search.
other way is to exclude metadata you don't want in search.
3rd way you can exclude the site collection (in ssp) or library/list from search results (document library settings > advanced setting > last option).
