I have a redhat 6.0 system, and I installed ht://dig. I have a private
archive, so I had to configure htdig to index the files on the filesystem
instead of digging through the web server. Finding out how to do this was
less than obvious in the documentation. (You should be able to find an rpm
of htdig somewhere if you don't want to compile it yourself.)

However, I cannot add the search widget to my archive index page. When I
go to the administration page to edit it, none of the changes take effect.
I have asked here and on -developers for help, with no response.

Good luck.
