All I got to was
File: info.info,  Node: Top

"No index" it says when I tried to search for why s and M-s are bound
to the same thing, at that point... nobody has made an index for that
part of Info.

"s" didn't seem to find much,

Eli> You can do this with "M-x grep".

cd /usr/share/info/
grep -n -e search * /dev/null
dir:201:* Kpathsea: (kpathsea).                       File lookup along search 
dir:217:* kpsewhich: (kpathsea)Invoking kpsewhich.    TeX file searching.

[the rest are .bz ..., as others have mentioned.]

Anyways, why are s and M-s are bound to the same thing in info?
