    If you want a customized site search engine you will have two choices. One, go to Google and use theirs; two, write (or acquire) a search-engine script written in a server-side programming language such as ASP or PHP that ties into a back-end database.

    I think this is the google search you're after

    http://www.google.com/searchcode.html

    If you want a custom php script then you could try somewhere like http://www.hotscripts.com as there's loads of free code you can download and use if you don't know how to write your own.

    Personally I'd probably write my own php linked in with a mysql database but if you aren't familiar with php then it might be better using something that searches a static site and I'm sure I've seen some of these available on hotscripts.

    If that's a little over your head as well though then the google search is probably your best bet.

    If you can't do php, take a look at www.wrensoft.com they offer a search functionality that I've heard is pretty good.
