Technically, it is an object within the MSXML component, which comes with
IE. If you use the plain-old vanilla IE on your web server without
installing MSXML separately, you probably have the ancient
non-standards-compliant MSXML 1.0. You can download the newest (4.0) which
complies with all XML/XSLT/XML Schema standards at

Just something to look out for.

And to answer the original question since I was out last week:

Have the ASP page HTML create a form element with an action pointing to a
web server on the linux box which processes the search engine results. :)
