  Thanks for the advice.  I have installed wordpress and serendipity 
blog wise and like both of those.  MediaWiki looks great. I just need to 
get the syntax down and also the normal process of finding the layout 
files.  Looks like it's going to do the trick fer me  ... errr, I mean 
for me ... on this particular project.

Thanks to those folks that made recommendations... mucho appreciated
