I like this one myself - http://www.dokuwiki.org/dokuwiki
I am about to set up a technicians wiki here in school so we can create a sort of online expert system so that if I get run over by a bus tomorrow, the next in line and technicians can get access to the work I have done.
I'm sure most of us here have ideas/solutions etc stored in our heads.
Does anyone here have a technical wiki I could take a look at to see what you have done?
I've downloaded MediaWiki and installed it on an external test server for now. Is MediaWiki the best to use or should I look elsewhere?
Any demos appreciated,

Maybe upload anything useful to our wiki then put in your documentation go to edugeek.net
Which are you wanting? An expert system or a wiki? The 2 are different things?
If you want the prior, MediaWiki can certainly do what you want, even if it is quite a big package. For the latter, try looking at Robopebble | The Programming Pebble
It is a simple expert system - ie. you are presented with a question, then you choose an answer, which provides you with another question, and eventually you reach an answer.
The code is very simple, so it is easy to customise it too.
Note: I've used it heavily at a previous job, and added a few improvements to it.
I used mediawiki in the past and now use the knowledgebase part of my little helpdesk.
Okay we cannot ask questions of it - but I am sure you know what I meant. :-)
I wonder if setting up a proper expert system - as you describe it (and as I teach it) would be a good answer. I'm going to look at the Robopebble thing you describe.
I did exactly the same thing for exactly the same reasons at my last school. I downloaded a prebuit MediaWiki VM and used that.
Here I've set up a Fronter (VLE) Room called 'ICT Technicians' that includes a 'TechWiki' folder. This will ultimately become 'THE' knowledge base for staff and techies alike.
Woah... scary... we've just done that with mediaWiki
We use dokuwiki here. Flat files so I can update the wiki either via a browser or via vim in a ssh session.
Got one here on our tech vle area.
Sections I've set up include:
RM CC3 Network Tips
I must admit I haven't looked at it / changed anything in a while. This could be a job I do in the next couple of weeks when things hopefully die down.
