I have a new sharepoint farm setup.  1 SQL DB server and the other the web/application server.  Everything is working well except for search.  I can search as the farm administrator but not as any other user.  I have setup according to the instructions from the following page.  I have even reinstalled Sharepoint and started over but the same issue.  I must have a setting missing or something.

99% of the time, this is a security issue with the service accounts.  One popular fix is to verify the Crawl account is in the Pre-Windows 2000 AD group.
