I think the answer is you can't do this as things are currently set up. However, since I also use Mac OS 10.4, I would be glad to learn I am wrong.

The problem is Spotlight doesn't index file content. The few exceptions to this (e.g. PDF files) seem to be only those file types Apple uses extensively. I suppose Wolfram could put this functionality into the notebook mdimporter they created. But at the moment, this importer does not appear to do much at all with notebook content.
