Enable Accent Sensitive Search for MOSS

I was recently asked this question, while I knew it was possible I didn’t know off hand whether it was a Central Administration setting or run a command at the prompt.  It turned out to be a command option of stsadm, shown below:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN>stsadm -o oSearchdiacriticsensitive -ssp sharedServices1 -setStatus TRUE

Diacritics-sensitive search is Off.
Caution: This operation will reset the indexed content.
Do you want to continue? [y/n]y
Diacritics-sensitive search is On.
Resetting indexed content…
Operation completed successfully.

Hope this helps someone.
