No search results

I have spidered a non-portal file share but when I go to search for any
documents in this file share, nothing appears. I just get a message saying:

No results were found that match your query. Please consider the following:
Is your query spelled correctly?

I have attached a screen dump of my Configure Search and Indexing screen. As
you can see, number of processed documents is 126,562 - but I can't search
for them?

Can anybody tell us what we need to do next?

A few questions:

1) Are you certain that the index is included in the scope of the search?
2) Are you certain that the user running the search  has permissions to view the
items being indexed?
3) What is the search looking for - file  names or file contents? If contents,
what type of files are they?
4) Is the search term a complete word of a word fragment? (e.g. are you trying
to find something like "formal" by searching for "form")

Thanks. The answer to your questions

1) How can I see if the index is included in the scope of the search?
2) The user has permission to view all items
3) search  is looking for word documents, i.e. 'Mr Smith Tax Return 2004'
4) I have tried searching part of the document title and the complete name,
i.e. 'Smith' and 'Mr Smith Tax Return 2004'
