phpdig does not work for us either, since I believe that they will modifications to be made to the server side. We do not have access to our server.
Looks like freefind and bravenet are the best options for us now.
It can be implemented with any site. Just insert a small script where you want the results to appear and save it as the template page. I did it in about 20 seconds.
I have also heard of FDSE being a good one, but have never tried it, as Ksearch did the job brilliantly. Ksearch can be found at the Cgi Resource Index, or Google.
I've seen many "site search" implementations that (from a user perspective) are pretty useless. There have been occasions when, out of curiosity, I've tried searching for things that I know exist on a site yet the search facility has failed to come up with it. Depends on your requirements really but for a fast, scalable system that works, I'd really recommend Lucene.
