I used the georeferencing plugin with QGIS 1.6 and now that I've upgraded to 1.7.4 I'd like to do it again. But when I search for the georeferencer plugin, it's not available! Am I doing something wrong?... I also seems that there's no georeferencing option included with version 1.7.4.

The Georeferencer plugin is included as a default plugin. To activate, in the menu, click Plugins > Manage Plugins. Put a check mark before the Georeferencer to activate.
