You need to go thru the following post: http://www.dotnetmafia.com/blogs/dotnettipoftheday/archive/2010/05/13/wildcard-search-web-part-for-sharepoint-2010.aspx

Corey has explained the code in his post clearly. This web part only appends '*' as suffix to the search term and passes it on to the search engine. You'll need to custom develop this web part for any further search flexibility.
