Do you have the search set up as it's own site?
This is what I just did...
Create new site - enterprise search site.
Called it "Search"
Went back to the home site
site settings - navigation
then under global navigation I added a heading, called it search and then put the url in to the new search site
http://servername/Search/Pages/default.aspx

Does this do the trick?

i found it using your advice, under home site navigation under headings, search is there, but it will be bracketed (hidden) so you just highlight it and then press show, done

now i need to have the browse section look like the other sections, browse on search has that thin no bar, i will try look for differences in the heading code and copy across
