    Alternatively is there a way to view files in groups? ie, all word documents grouped, all flash files grouped etc?

    You can switch to "list" view (hit command + 2 whilst in the folder) then click the "kind" column to sort by kind.

    here you go: Mac OS X 10.4 Help: Organizing related files with Smart Folders

    Edit:
    oh sry, you wanted to create it from a existing folder, oops anyway, what is the point of creating a folder and then making it a smart folder? smart folders are for keeping links to files according to a search

    To create a link to a folder, right click it and select create alias, you can now move the alias around and it will get you to te folder anywhere you click it
