We still have rules as to how we would like users to conduct themselves. 
  Please read them on typo3.org.  You will find that many of the people 
here who hold the answers *wont* help you if you dont abide by the rules 
- newsgroup or not!

The opening in anew window is a setting in your template constants, easy 
to find where/how to change it and there are lots of posts about it in 
the list archives on typo3.org

results being inserted into the column - thats because the form is in 
that column.  What i tend to do is create the working search on a page 
in the certer column and then copy the html into my template (in your 
case the left column) and have it submit to the page with the full form. 
  that way the correct working form appears on every page, but submits 
and displays properly on one selected page in the site. (index search 
should return lots of help in the archives,a nd there is documentation 
for it also)

Also as a word of caution, i would use index search as opposed to simple 
search.  In my experience we have had heavy server load for searches 
using the simple search. this is especally true if its a large site.
