text search question

I'm working on a new project with php & mysql.

I anticipate that one of the tables may grow above 40 GB in a short
time. The main content is text. Now what tools do I need to implement a
text search in this big text database ? I'd like the search to be quite
advanced, supporting boolean operations and metaphones and so on.

What should I be surveying now ?

Any hints/pointers/suggestions/comments/ advise on concepts ?

You will need a commercial text search and indexing tool. Oracle*Text is
one such tool. I was consulting for a company that was using it and they
were very happy with the tool.
This group might not be the right place to ask such a question. Of course,
PHP supports Oracle so you will be able to interface PHP with Oracle*Text.
