Speeding up the FrontPage search feature

Microsoft Frontpage
When you have a large web site and you have only one FrontPage Web and you add the FrontPage search feature to your site, the FrontPage server extensions index the whole site.  So when you do a full text search it goes through each and every file.

The best way to speed up this process is to separate your Web site into different webs called 'Child Webs'.  When you do this it creates smaller chunks, which can be searched at a faster speed.  The downfall of doing this is that FrontPage requires specific hidden files to perform various functions.  When you create 'Child Webs' it adds to the disk space on our server, which could result in an overage.
