Full-Text Indexing for smaller columns


I'm looking at using full-text indexing for tables to query. I have some smaller fields (varchar(50) that stores names) that I was contemplating using full-text indexing for. I was just curious if it is worth it?
Basically the data that will be there are one-word names, without any spaces or whatnot.

Just try this little experiment. 1. Create an FTCatalog2. Add a table and populate the FTC3. Query the table with LIKE - enable execution plan4....
