Hi Ephraim

If you want Greenstone to search your cds isis data, you'll need to
build a greenstone collection containing the data. The basic steps are
(using GLI):

1. Create a new collection (File -> New)
2. Copy the .mst, .fdt and .xrf files of your CDS/ISIS database into the
collection (Gather pane)
3. Add ISISPlug to the list of plugins (Design pane)
4. Build your collection (Create pane)
5. Preview your collection (Create pane)

There is no way to make Greenstone search the data while it is still in
cds isis. you need to import it into a collection.
