FBA and People Search?

I'm trying to get people search working on a FBA site. I got mysites working but can't seem to get people search to work. Has anybody got this done? Is there some kind of trick I have to do to get it done? I've got the web application extended to also allow Windows Authentication and the crawler can access the mysites.

Sorry to bump this up: has anyone got any info on this? Does it work? Doesn't it work?

Sorry, I've not used it, although from what I can think, its not related to FBA as such, the search would be indexing the users inside SharePoint, i.e those people stored in "User Information List". The crawler account must have the correct permissions to read the site, check in the Diagnostic Logging in Central Admin (ULS). FBA is responsible for the Authentication during login, once the user is in the users profile is in SharePoint and is not related to FBA at all. Hope that helps a bit. Anthony
