Why not re-use an existing technology? I can think of several free pack-
ages that are free. Also, depending on how you store your data, it may be
possible to incorporate a search facility without any additional work,
e.g. SQL queries. If you have a public site (not intranet) and it is
crawled quite exhaustively, then you can also embed a Yahoo site search
widget, for instance.
Like Stan said, many people have asked similar questions in the past.
