I have a SharePoint 2007 List and it has almost 10 columns and 1000+ items, I want to enable the Index for a specific column is in the list. If I enable the index now then when it will create an index for that column? Is there a way to kick of the indexing process manually?

You can manually start a crawl by going to

  1. Shared Services - > search settings -> Content sources and crawl schedules

Start full Crawl or Start Incremental Crawl

Take a look at this technet article too : Crawl content (Office SharePoint Server 2007)
