Sharepoint Search is terrible

I’ve been working off and on on a SharePoint 2003 Prototype installation at work, and it seems to do what I want to accomplish: Give those who need documents from several departments based on their location all the documents they would ever want. However, to do it the best way to maintain I need to be able to search and filter by filename. Should be easy, right? I’m afraid not. In 2003 the search engine lets you search and filter on every attribute you could ever want, even by who their manager is, but you cannot search by the name of the file itself. And the reasoning behind this I have not been able to dig up anywhere. If anyone has any knowledge about the search engine in Sharepoint 2003 and why you can’t search by name (some wierd indexing key in the file database in sharepoint?) please post a comment. Thanks.
