I can get to that page, but when I try to do a search it
tells me access is forbidden to me.

I did a search of the Web thru Excite, and found a lot of pages that
said something like "Please Note: By the terms of MIT's license agreement
with Oxford University Press, access to these materials is limited to
Authorized Users of the MIT...".  I saw a page from Oxford University
itself that said there was a setup like that at the University of
Illinois, and they hoped to get it soon at Oxford[!]  The cobblers children...

There is a public OED Online at http://www.oed.com/oetc.html
It's still under construction, and it looks it'll be pay-per-view
when they're done.  But look at the Demonstration Pages!
