      I don't think so, but of course you can make a new command. For example:
          command! -nargs=+ SF let @/ = '^.\{-}\zs'.<q-args> | call search('','s')
      Then :SF command will be your "search the first instance" command. The 
      command takes search pattern as its parameter:
          :SF abc
      After the first search you can use "n" and "N" in normal mode to search 
      for next and previous match.

      Thanks a lot Teemu. This is what I wanted for.
