An overview of the searches for gravitational waves from radio pulsars with LIGO and GEO is given. We give a brief description of the algorithm used in these targeted searches and provide end-to-end validation of the technique through hardware injections. We report on some aspects of the recent S3/S4 LIGO and GEO search for signals from several pulsars. The gaussianity of narrow frequency bands of S3/S4 LIGO data, where pulsar signals are expected, is assessed with Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests. Preliminary results from the S3 run with a network of four detectors are given for pulsar J1939+2134.
