I found Mediawiki easier to setup than MoinMoin (although still easy if
you read on how to install!).  MoinMoin is better in my opinion due to
the search results.  I couldn't find away of searching for a phrase on
Mediawiki and the searched results displayed layout was not as good.

Mediawiki did seem quicker in searching, but it does use a database and
not flat files so it should be.

One advantage of MoinMoin as I said in my other message is that you
could give the content to be used on another platform (say your students
home PC's?).
