Sql 2k Full-Text Indexing Greyed Out in Enterprise Manager?

If the Full-Text Search Option is greyed out in the Sql 2k Enterrpise Manager, have you just installed the Full-Text Search onto the server?  If so, you will need to re-install the Sql 2k service pak onto your server.

Not sure if you are asking a question or making a statement... but, I'm pretty sure Full Text Indexing is installed by default on servers (Personal Edition it is not installed by default).

If you don't have the option available when you are using Enterprise Manager, check to make sure the database container has full text indexing enabled. Do a search of online books for the stored procedure that you can run.

Click on to the "Table" under the "Database" & then see the "Full text indexing"
