The MOSS 2007 People Search Web Part (PeopleResults.aspx) navigates to an invalid URL (Returning a 404 Error)

If you get a 404 error when using the Search People Web Part, the typical problem is that the part is not pointing to the Search centre correctly.

To fix this, just do the following:
1) Modify Shared Settings on the People Search web part
2) Expand the Miscellaneous section and change the Target search results page URL to /searchcenter/Pages/peopleresults.aspx (Where the /searchcenter portion would be the URL to your search center).

They have a guide to doing efficient searches there as well for downloading.
