I've installed wiki on a little server on my NT box at work, in the hope that it'll be a more useful collaboration/knowledge-sharing/information-wants-to-be-free-man thing than the God-awful (and apparently infinite number of) Notes databases we have here.

Installing on NT proved to be simple, but I encountered a problem with the Perl build I was using. It was build with sdbm, which has a limit of around 1k per entry, which doesn't take long to hit. Instead I grabbed one of the hacked versions which stores each page in a file, and that worked splendidly (once I'd take out the spelling checking and RCS stuff - it's a fine idea, but not workable on my box).
