I am facing a challenge with the MOSS..
We want to implement MOSS as a knowledge management portal.

so all the users need to search all the documents irrespective of the
Currently because of security trimming feature in MOSS the users are not
able to open the documents which they dont have permissions.
If they dont have the permission for to open the document then users have to
see an option like Request permission for the Document ..

If anybody can give some idea it would be a gr8 help to us.

Grant them permission to all documents. You could do this via Web Application
policy, via Anonymous Access, or just using regular permissions and an AD Group.

If we grant them permissions to all the documents then they are able to open
the documents.

The requirement is like this that the users are able to search the document
but they should not have permission to open the document.

Perhaps someone can take the following idea to the next level:

Context: By default, SharePoint executes the search query using the current
SharePoint user's credentials and only returns results that where you are
allowed to access the contents of the documents.

Idea: Create a custom search page with code behind that impersonates the
crawl account (for example) when the query is being made, the search results
should include all possible results regardless of whether you have actual
access to the contents of the documents or not. Clicking on a link in the
search results will still use the user's personal credentials .so access
controls on the document will still work in the normal way.

.or something like that.

But if it's sensitive data, and thus the reason they are not allowed to
open it, they stand a chance of seeing that sensitive data in the query
