We built a test like this with CentOS, Samba, Fuse, Lucene and Apache that worked very much like Google Desktop search.  It worked really well but at the end of the day we are not a software company and didn't pursue this further.

Let me know if you want me to search for our old notes on this test.

Anyone know of a good opensource product to give google desktop like search 
functionality via web browser of a set of samba shares running on a Debian 
5.x server. It needs to be able to fully index word, excel, openoffice and 
text files at a minimum.  It should also have some form of ACL control so 
that only certain users can actually search the index for specific smb 

In this particular instance, there is a general office share which everyone 
should be able to use and a partners/owners/managers share which should be 

Staff are running Linux, Mac OSX and Windows.

So far googling's found me this

IBM OmniFind Yahoo! Edition is a no-charge enterprise search software 
solution that enables rapid deployment of intranet and file system search for 
both employees and customers.


However this product only officially supports RH and SUSE.

Any other good suggestions
