Another thing I just realized is I don't think a spider type
of searc engine will work.  The web site dynamically generates
many html links depending on who you login as and what credentials you
have.  The site is also protected by Nettegrity so a spider type of
search engine won't be able to login.  I really only need a page indexer
that will search throught the html and php pages and index the static text
and allow a user to search that.  For example, one php page has company
benefit information that doesn't change often.  I would like a user to
be able to enter a search for a word/phrase in that page and the search
engine will show a link to that page.

Thanks for any help,

Jim Drabb
