Create a knowledge base using Sharepoint designer 2010

Hello.  Is it possible to create a knowledgebase using sharepoint designer 2010?  We have the sharepoint workspace, but we don't have the ability to use sharepoint server....yet.  In the meantime, are we able to create a knowledgebase in a similar way one would when using Sharepoint server 2010?

Thanks.

You might want to have a look at installing something like TWIKI on a web server in house.

No. Sharepoint designer connects to and allows to to design and configure sites on a Sharepoint server and you don't have one.

@AlMothanaAlOmari

The question clearly states that they DO NOT have a sharepoint server so your comment on using sharepoint and templates is of no use.

There are a 101 ways to create a knowledgebase. It depends entirely on what you have at your disposal. Do you have a budget? Can it be freeware that already exists? How many users? Must it be web based? Intranet only? External access?

You need to consider lots of questions before deciding on what to create/install

Yes, we're on a budget.  It would be great if it were freeware that already exists.  No need to reinvent the wheel if it's unnecessary.
Our users (600 users) are tech savvy.  We would like it to be web-based.
