These is how the results are displayed:

1. Ads from Overture
2. Search engine results from Google (they're testing other results, sometimes straight inktomi, other times a mixture).

On the right hand side they have their own media ads, and in the shopping section they look like Google Adwords but served by overture.

For the directory they have a tab that you would click on to get the directory results; these are not enhanced on the search engine results page.

Hope this helps.
