Search website + tagging over my corporate file system?

So we have a large corporate file share that is powered by a bespoke CMS. The bespoke CMS very buggy and un-user friendly, but it is political to scrap it.

Fortunately, the content of the CMS can be accessed via simple UNC file share where you can run windows search against it, or pass full UNC paths around for easier access.

I want to go to the next level where we drop a web front end over the unc path, and a simple application that can quickly search the filesystem (rather than having to use windows search), and ideally supporting indexing of all the file names and putting them into some kind of tag cloud.

Since this is quite a generic requirement, there must be some out of the box solutions out there already - can anyone recommend me one?
