There are a couple of Open Source products that might be useful to you:

-htdig ( It's for UNIX and Linux platforms, but, assuming that it's running off a UNIX server, providing a front end for Windows use should be straightforward.

-Zope (; has a couple of plug-ins for developing search engines, and is available on both Windows and *NIX platforms. It will time to sort through all the information on Zope -it's a huge project - but the results should be worthwhile.
