Search isn't my bailiwick (in fact it is typically disabled in my
development environment) but I'm pretty sure that the default WSS search

Yep, default search  behavior includes All Sites. I assume you're running
SharePoint Server 2007 and not a standalone WSS site.

In the root site  of the site collection, click  Site Settings and on the Site
Settings page under Site collection  Administration you should see a link 'Search
scopes'. Click on Search scopes and check the Display Group option  (Display
Group: Search Dropdown) - this should show 'All sites'.

The issue for me was that I had not created
the Search Center site. Once I created a top level site  collection
and chose the Search Center template, everything came together.

The use custom scope option  is really for pointing the search  web part
to the SSP's index via a search center  in a publishing site. Poorly
written, I agree.
