Search can be used on your site 3 ways:

Skin Token
You can embed the (!SEARCH_BOX!) skin token into your skin wherever you would like the search box to appear.

You can insert a search form into the template file (as the default skin 1 template has), along the lines of:

<form name="topsearchform" method="get" action="search.aspx">
  <input type="text" size="15" name="SearchTerm" class="searchBox" id="searchBox" autocomplete="off"
  onfocus="javascript:this.style.background='#ffffff';" onblur="javascript:this.style.background='#dddddd';" />
  <input type="button" onclick="document.topsearchform.submit()" title="Click Go to Submit" id="Go"
  class="submit" value="Go" />

Search Page
You can link directly to the /search.aspx page, which has a form built-in that customers can use.
