Best practice for installing SPF2010 and Search Express 2010 on same web server?


I've searched and seemed to find conflicting information.   Is there any place that gives instruction on how to install SPF2010 and Search Express 2010 on the same server?    I set up a single WFE with separate SQL backend farm for SPF2010 testing, but then discoverd that Search Express was required to be able to add the PDF iFilter we use extensively in WSS 3.0.   The one page I found in Technet that lists articles about "upgrade" doesn't have anything linked yet and various forum entries appear to be contradictory.   So can anyone tell me what the best practice is?   Do I start over and just install Search Express and add my SPF site collections to it?  Can I install Search Express and select existing farm (the SPF one) rather than new farm as the installation instructions say?    And if they really should be on separate WFE servers, how do I get the SPF sites to use the SSE search?   Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

MS SQL Server: Search All Tables, Columns & Rows For Data or Keyword Query

If you need to search your entire database for specific data, this query will come in handy.

So when a client needs a custom report or some sort of custom development using Great Plains, most of the time I will have to track down the data in the system by running this query and find the table(s) it is in.

Adding Search Refinements in SharePoint 2010

I have been playing around with SharePoint 2010 Search this morning. I love the new UI. The search refinements panel is just begging to be messed with. In my case I wanted to add the file extension JPG as an Image Type refiner.
