Wikis and SharePoint sites can also be a great help in creating and maintaining an internal knowledge base of troubleshooting tips and tricks, as well as how-to documents relevant to your environment. Focus more on content than format, as the idea here is to make it simple to maintain, not necessarily pretty.

In this slideshow, Christina Goggi, writing for GFI Software, provides some tips on how to approach them.
