Net Asset Calculation % suggestion: Wiki

I've been testing RT, a ticket-tracker, and the folks who wrote it also have 
an knowledge base tool, called RTFM.  I'd been considering setting up anyway 
to see whether it works well.

I'd be happy to set it up on a machine, give a summary of how good or bad it 
seems to me, and let folks play with it if they want to.  The main catch I 
would expect is that I haven't ever used such a tool before, so fine points 
will go right over my head.

Alternatively, we use TWiki at work and I'd be happy to discuss my experience 
with that as well, or set one up and make it available for evaluation 

In fact, (after a tool is chosen and set up) I also wouldn't mind combing the 
mailing list to build FAQ entries, as long as it's OK that progress would ebb 
and flow.

Any votes for/against either TWiki or RTFM?
