Actually you need to edit your search.html and add:
         <OPTION VALUE="boolean">Boolean
in the section entitled:
        <SELECT NAME="method">

The reason you get this option later is very simple... the common files have
this option and the search.html example does not :) enjoy!

Oh, btw, here is an ht://dig example:
it has the simple search and a link to the more advanced search just below the
menus on the left.
You guys made this possible... thanx bunches.
