In the distributed search form, there is a tag
  <INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" NAME="config" VALUE="htdig">

The value in the tag tell htsearch to use htdig.conf as the
configuration file. What you can do is create a .conf file for each
database you want search (eg htd1.conf, htd2.conf, ...). Use the
following code to select which database to search in:

Database: <SELECT NAME="config">
<OPTION VALUE="htd1">Database 1</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="htd2">Database 2</OPTION>
...
</SELECT>

This will let you search different search databases using one search
form.
