    We present a search for charged Higgs bosons in top quark decays. We analyze the /eplus, /muplus, $ee$, $e/mu$, $/mu/mu$, /etau and /mutau final states from top quark pair production events, using data from about 1${/text{fb}}^{-1}$ of integrated luminosity recorded by the /dzero experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. We consider different scenarios of possible charged Higgs boson decays, one where the charged Higgs boson decays purely hadronically into a charm and a strange quark, another where it decays into a τ lepton and a τ neutrino and a third one where both decays appear. We extract limits on the branching ratio $B(t/to H^+ b)$ for all these models. We use two methods, one where the $t/bar{t}$ production cross section is fixed, and one where the cross section is fitted simultaneously with $B(t/to H^+b)$. Based on the extracted limits, we exclude regions in the charged Higgs boson mass and $/tan /beta$ parameter space.
