I was thinking that perhaps I can pre-stem words before sticking them in a 
search field in the database perhaps using Lucene stemming code, then try to 
use the Natural Language Search found in MySql 4.1.1.   I am confident the 
MySql product can't keep up with Lucene yet, but at least they hvae improved it 
some.  Not even sure if my hosting company will upgrade to 4.1.1 though.  Still 
looking for a lot of solutions to make Lucene sit in synch more nicely with 
MySql as the main database...aka an easy to use way of handling
