I'd like to second Mick's suggestion. We've been working with
KnowledgeTree for the past 4 years or so and have no complaints whatsoever.

On our company network we have a daily growing number of documents in lots of folders and stuff. Most of it is organised in
project folders and has reoccurring folder structures and file names.
I want to suggest to install a search engine which will index our existing files so that employees can crawl quickly though
I've heard of the various desktop search engines like beagle, tracker and google desktop but are there open source engines
which can be run on a server so that many can connect to it and search?
Sadly we are relying on MS office (2001), AutoCAD (R16 to 2008) and other proprietary software in our daily work so those
kind of files would need to be indexed.
Does anyone has a idea, something I could investigate further? a software name?
Sounds like a document management system is what you might be better off with. This allows for searching of documents complete with an ACL system to protect private documents.
Have you had a look at http://www.knowledgetree.com/.
This http://bitnami.org/stack/knowledgetree is a simple way of installing it all. I find Bitnami stacks are great for evaluating a package before deploying it the traditional way.
