Suggestions for a portable wiki?
I've been using Ubuntu for almost a week, and I dual boot with XP, but my favorite program Notebook, doesn't have, to my knowledge, a linux version. So, if possible I would like something that is mutually compatible with XP and linux and can handle large volumes of pages and is not meant to posted on-line. Points go to something that works on a Thumbdrive or external media of sort.

Any ideas?

probably what best fills your need is freemind

Otherwise I'd recommend tiddlywiki. if you were just using Gnome, Tomboy would also be quite good

I'll second tiddly - fits quite nicely on a usbkey. I've had mine on a 256Meg key for about a year. Works on everything I use.

If you want to take a do it yourself approach I use txt2tags for all of my note keeping needs. This program takes wiki-like markup and converts it into many other kinds of markup. This would be only a piece of the puzzle if you wanted to build it into a notebook system.

My system is still based around a simple script that exports a directory of txt2tags files to a directory of html files.
I'm still learning, but what I've put together works well for me.

Even if you don't use it as part of your regular notekeeping system it is a great tool to know about.

Good Luck
