full-text search with '&'

I have a table that contains title and description of links from the open directory project. I built a full-text index on title+description, but when I did searches like 'AT&T' it returned no results. I found out that & is actually hard-coded as one of the boolean syntax characters. So I recompiled the server without the '&' in the ft_static.c, thinking that searches like 'AT&T' would work. (btw, my min search word length is set to 3 in my.cnf)
After repairing the table, I'm still not getting the results I expected...Has anyone run into this type of issue before? thanks for your help in advance,
