Please reply off-list:

I'm toying with the idea of setting up a wiki at my work. Here's the 
situation: I'm a drafter in the engineering dept. of a manufacturing 
company. From time to time other drafters, and I, come up with tips and 
tricks regarding the CAD and solid-modeling software we use. When 
someone comes up with a tip, s/he emails it to all the other drafters, 
who are then free to archive the email if they like. The problem is 
that we occasionally hire new people, and realistically, people just 
aren't going to forward all those legacy emails to the newbies. I'm 
thinking a Wiki might be better. Criteria for the software:

1) It needs to be freeware--I seriously doubt my employer will pay for 
something like this.

2) It needs to run under Windoze.

3) Users don't need to be able to access the wiki over the 
internet--it'd be strictly for internal departmental use.

4) It needs to be easy to set up and administer (I've never done this 
before), and easy for users to post articles to.

Any suggestions? Thank you.
