Have been having problems with using XP Search tool for finding files in a Mapped Drive. When i search *.doc it says no files found even though there are hundreds of Word Docs in there. No idea wat the problem is.

Double check your advanced search settings... make sure you are not searching by a specific date(s) or by case. Make sure you are searching the subfolders. Hope that something here will help you out.

Might sound simple but are the files on the mapped drive hidden and you client is set to view non-hidden files and folders?

We are experiencing problems trying to search for files in a distributed file system just like in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 825794 as well. I think this your far there is no fix for this issue as SP2 does not correct the issue nor does the HotFix. The file search still works on WIN2K...just not in XP
