Of course, it depends on what "something" is. I could setup it up for
less -- but on Linux. Heck that would save even more money -- what's
W2K Server now? About $1000? And there's this savings, too:
There's a few people on the list that use swish-e under Windows --
hopefully someone can offer help.
I'd also recommend looking at your needs carefully and see if swish-e
meets those. If you have a HUGE number of docs that need to be
reindexed often then swish-e might not be the best solution. Might find
that you need something that does incremental indexing.
BTW -- doesn't IIS come with something called MS Index Server?
