    Really whatever floats your boat.

    Anything in AD is self documenting, but Excel, or SharePoint for other lists
    Visio for networking diagrams, and back of envelope if needed.

    I always keep paper copies of critical information (anything I may need to get a downed system back up)

    Excel is an easy way to start, but you will grow out that very quickly. I would look for a decent CMDB depending on your budget.

    you could even (GASP!) code something up in Access to do this.

    or look at something like Naverisk, Labtech or N-able. They give you far more than just asset control though, and cost more accordingly.

    And you could do that by learn about Access from the excellent Train Signal Access Labs by the BRILLIANT Heather Ackmann.

    Just my 2(choose your currency here) worth.
    Before you even get to using tools – choose a system, names tell what you are looking at S for Server, W for workstation, P for Printer, V for VM etc.
    F1, F2 etc if on different floors, B1, B2 in different buildings
    Then choose your IP addresses accordingly, if you use class C then .1-20 for servers, .50-199 for workstations, .200-219 for printers, .240-254 for switches, routers, firewall and other network equipment, for example
