Step-by-step instructions:
- run your web or news search on the MSN Search Beta (http://beta.search.msn.com/)
- add the text "&format=rss" to the url
- copy the full url into your RSS Reader.

Here is a sample web search url:
http://beta.search.msn.com/results.aspx?q=tsunami+relief&format=rss

Here is a sample news search url:
http://beta.search.msn.com/news/results.aspx?q=tsunami+relief&format=rss

Not a bad move by Microsoft! Google, on the other hand, has already got uppity about RSS feeds; they've shut down a couple of sites hosting scripts which tap the engine and pump out keyword searches.
