SharePoint configures a rule for Searching people out of the box. Are you having issues with it, trying to perform a custom search, or something else? – Jesus Shelby Jul 19 '11 at 16:39
we provisioned a brand new test box and i need to setup people search as well as regular search like production. when i do create new site i dont see enterprise search as an optin. so i went to site settings and page layouts and site templates. i do see that the enterprise search is listed. hmm. i activated all the features as well. what's next. – David Mike Jul 19 '11 at 16:56

Review this post. It's a pretty good step by step on configuring Search.
