    I guess sharepoint isnt a thing to muck about with with a bottle of wine and the tv on..

    Can this be used at home? I have 100's of Word/Excel files which I'd love to 'index' in some way. I have Office 2010, what else do I need?

    To run SharePoint Foundation? SQL Express, IIS, and a few other prereqs - nothing major.

    With a bit of work you can actually install it on a Windows 7 or Vista machine as well, though that's intended for development only.

    the moodle file repository module in 2.0 - would mirror your docs online.
    Google apps is a fantastic way of organizing files - the search is so good.
    Alfresco has a document management system: Content Integration and Content Services by Alfresco

    We use a wiki for our ICT Support portal - useful for keeping passwords, serials, how to guides etc in the one place.

    Just got to remember to keep it up to date as much as possible.

    You could use it but what version of Windows are you using? If you've got windows 7 then the search facility is amazingly good. If you've got XP and a reasonable spec machine then I'd just put on the Windows search - it's pretty good in the last version (4??) and if you haven't got a decent spec machine then I really wouldn't put Sharepoint on it -you're adding a webserver and a SQL server which need a fair bit of oomph to work well!
