Explain this better

Warning: This is a newbie question. :) I've read the sticky post, but I couldn't find an answer for my question.

I'm dealing with some huge databases - over 60 million records with a lot of text searches such as first letter of the first name, partial text search, etc.. The fields are all VARCHARs.

So I've created 3 full text indices.
firstname
lastname
firstname+lastname

Is that the best approach?

Another question would be why would someone not want to use a fulltext index on a varchar field if queries are being executed against that field?
