Indexing PDF's using MS Indexing Service

C
Hi,

I currently use MS Indexing Service to search my htm and
aspx pages.

I recently downloaded the IFilter tool from Adobe.

When I now do a search it still does not pick up any text
in my PDF's.

My PDF's are being indexed and I have stopped / started
the Catalaog / Service.

I find it hard to get any documention on the IFilter tool
that is downloadable from Adobe.com.

Any help or advice on this is much appreciated.

Thanks,
C.

Forgot to add: You basically install the filter and once that's done, you
search the document in the same way you would search any other document in
index server. You could use the document properties to filter a certain type
of document -- using the SQL or the index server objects.
