edit the HOSTS file on EVERY computer. Add an entry with wiki and the IP of the server where the wiki is running
Install and configure a full DNS Server and let all DomainName requests run through this.
both isn't very handy.

If you want to use DomainNames (everything alse then IP-Address or ComputerName) then there is no way without a DNS-Server and that means your IT have to do something.
The other possibility is to use the Servers Computername (or IP-Address) and make use of:
- port based VHosts
- or keyword/RegExp mod_rewrite
- or keyword/RegExp Redirects/Alias
in all of that cases there is no way around to use the IP or Computersname (or an existing DNS of your IT have already a DNS-Server and mapped one to this server).
HOSTS files are just like lokal small DNS-Servers, but they just take effect for the requesting computer, not for the server who gets the request (which is clear, the computer have to know where the request can be sended to).
