[thelist] Searching multiple words in database

I have a MySQL DB which I wanted to be able to search for a user
submitted query (through a search form). Right now I am doing a LIKE
%query% match on multiple fields (using OR). I want to be able to search
multiple words and then return the results order by relevance.

Is there an out of the box solution or script or tutorials you guys can
recommend or give me some direction on efficient ways of doing this.
