* SharePoint : Why there are two search services ?

You have installed MOSS farm and now setting up the services on the farm. What you see is that there are two search services .. why ?


Office SharePoint Server Search : This is main Search service responsible for indexing the MOSS content.

Windows SharePoint Services Search : The name is slightly misleading but this service is used for indexing the help system content that gets installed as part of MOSS installation. So if you do not want your users to use Search of Help System… you do not need to start this service.
