You can use full text index in addition to = matches so you will only get order you need.

Speaking about perfomance - did you use MATCH IN BOOLEAN MODE - it is much faster.

Also you need to make sure FT index fits in key_buffer and probably preload it.

Did you try having index on surname first ?

Also do you know how foxpro executes such query ? Might be in your case full table scan is best solution ?
