There is "index server" and the indexing service in XP. The indexing
service comes with XP, though I don't think it is enabled by
To enable the indexing services in XP:
- Start > Search > Files and folders...
- click "Change preferences" in the menubar on the left.
- click "With Indexing Service (for faster local searches)".
Then you can enable it with the defaults or custom config.
I don't use this and I haven't tried the Google Desktop. I suspect
that indexing services are not as good and harder to configure.
Even so, XP does have indexing built-in (I think W2K has something
similar but I'm not sure).
