Search not working

I have an Alfresco installation which has been running for months now. The "recently modified" widget and the search functionality have never worked. I understand that this has something to do with solr and lucene indexes, but the documentation is not very beginner friendly, or very clear on how to configure this. A few questions:

1) What is the difference between Solr and Lucene? I have read that you can switch between the two, but have not idea how to or what the pro/cons are of using one or the other.
2) How do I configure my system to enable to search functionality?
3) Given that my installation was done using defaults why does this functionality not work "out of the box"?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
