I installed a wiki here at Quintiq 2 years ago (we call it Qwiki). It
has now (finally)
reached the position I wanted it to and has become the preferred
initial source for
information. They are really wonderful things when they work, but you
have to
evangelize like crazy and learn a lot of patience.

I use dokuwiki, mostly because of its flat file structure instead of
using a database.
This has paid off many times when I had a lot of files to import and
export, which I
do a lot as it serves as both a delivery platform and a source for the
documentation. We have now ported part of the wiki to outside world as
the beginning
of a customer knowledge base. Most other wikis I have seen seem to use
mediawiki though.

Some wiki examples (good and bad):

Hope this gives you some ideas.
