As someone posted, MySQL full-text indexing does not work with
InnoDB tables. I would recommend changing your backend to Oracle
and use the existing full-text patch in the wiki or to PostgreSQL
which should work with minimal changes to the patch. We will be
working on the PostgreSQL full-text support soon. Good luck.
