Hope its OK for me to get invlolved in this...

Many people will consider this obvious, but since you asked:

Check boxes would let me (user) search articles & comments, but not users.
Or any other combination. Limiting the user to only one search at a time
seems less friendly than giving them the choice of which source they want
their results from.
