MediaWiki is definitely _not_ the only game in town as far as wiki engines are 
concerned. PmWiki and PhpWiki are both very easy to install and run on PHP 
servers without needing a database.

Really, setting up a wiki isn't much harder than setting up a static Web site. 
And it's sure a lot more dignified than groveling at the feet of some admin 
begging for a few minutes of his time. B-)
