Yes and no. Each search engine has their own rules on it.

Yahoo - You have to pay to play if you are a business site. You
don't pay, you don't get in the directory.

AllTheWeb (Fast) - Paying will get you 48 hour spidering. If you
don't pay, they will still find you eventually. Look hard enough
on their site, and you will find a free submit anyway.

Inktomi - Paying will get you 48 hour spidering. Not paying and
they will eventually find you.

AltaVista - Paying gets you in faster, not paying and they will
find you.

LookSmart - You have not choice but to pay. This is a pay per
click search engine now.

Overture - Pay per click engine. You pay or you are not listed.

I hope this answers your questions.
