One of my clients has just asked me if I can create an intranet site for them, most of it is simple stuff like contact details etc but they also want a simple message board system so employees can leave messages for each other.

Does any one have any experience of setting this type of thing up? What would be the best way and what would the learning curve be?

Also does any off the shelf software exist to do this?

Thanks

PS
Is an intranet just a website run on a local area network or is there more to it?

What that like?

Are these fairly easy to setup? What kind of hosting do you need?
