In my last job, I sued HT/Dig, It's an open source tool and
not too difficult to set up if you know some UNIX (I believe there may now
be a Windows version, but at the time we installed it, it was UNIX/Linux
only.). It's quite fast and configurable and will search MS Office and PDF
as well as text and HTML.
