First, to remove "/index.php/" from the url, use mod_rewrite on .htaccess ( search in the wiki or the forums for this ), and to send "search/term_of_search/" to a specific method/function, use custom routes ( see rounting in user guide http://ellislab.com/codeigniter/user-guide/general/routing.html )

If after that, you can't make it work, please reply your specific problem here.

Saludos

If you want to access the "term_of_search" from your controller function you can do so via:

Code:
function search($term = NULL){
     if ($term){
        //run my search with the passed term
     }
}

Possible solutions are:

1) Reading the CI User's guide observingly from beginning to end and reverse,
or
2) Routing
or
3) _remap()
