There are three main interfaces to Spotlight - the useful one and the  
other two. ;-P

The only one that's all that useful is the one you get when hitting  
Apple-F in a Finder window, which allows you to restrict searches by -
Name:Contains:
Last Modified:Within:Last Week
Kind:Others:Revolution Stack
etc.
