	I recommend Metacrawler and Inference Find as the best two 
meta-search engines around.  The both cluster results nicely -- but 
differently.  Metacrawler is good because it does some parsing of search 
language and shows you what it sent to each search tool.  One can do 
either Boolean commands of +/- and get successful results.  You might
