I'm trying to set up a Wiki to share information at work and have been doing a bunch of research and trial and error to see what would work best for us. Problem is that I'm fairly inexperienced when it comes to this stuff and don't really know what to look for. I'm wondering if anyone who has any experience can recommend a good wiki software that can run off a local computer or network drive and ideally doesn't need any additional software.
Any help would be much appreciated.

There are several hosted wiki solutions, ones where all you have to do is set them up and they run off of the hosting server. Here's a few I found:

http://www.schtuff.com/
http://webcollaborator.com/
http://www.pbwiki.com

Out of those three, I'd recommend pbWiki. You can password-protect your wiki and it's got a really simple, clean interface.

Hope this helps.

If you can get IIS set up, OpenWiki works fairly well with an Access DB as the back end. I'd switch it over to SQL server - in fact, I did for the one that I'm running at work - but I hear the Access based one is OK for small groups.

Perhaps I can offer some perspective on this.... Dell (and several other companies) has an explicit policy that they are to support the base factory installed Operating System you got on your system.
