magento search - 'category name' matching search value to be returned

this is a repost due to the solution i now have does not function with the mobile theme 'iphone'

the standard magento search function does not look at the 'category name' value only various product values.


example :

i have 3 categories : car, van, bus

i have 10 SKU products : red car, blue car, green car, black car, red bus, black bus, blue bus, red van, silver van, gold van

if i enter 'van' into the magento search i get the following results :

product matches (3) :red van, silver van, gold van

the job:

i want to copy the built-in search feature but change the SQL to look only at the category name field. maybe the search could be called catsearch

(/[url removed, login to view])

example :

if i enter 'van' into the search i want the following results :

category matches (1) : van

this search feature will be hidden as we are using it from a barcode app that searches our website from a mobile device using the scanned value as the search string combined with the search URL. the category search feature can use the standard magento results page so no skin / theme work required.

i think this will just be a few files to copy paste so i dont need you to install only supply the instructions and updated code in a text doc. i am happy to copy files edit code and upload via ftp. this avoids any unnecessary access to our server.
