How about a blessed or holy short sword? Or annoint it with holy water? Or take the necromancer who is making the undead hostage and threaten to slit his throat with your short sword unless HE eliminates the undead FOR you.

I certainly built my character to be adept at rogue-type tasks, but to have more fun, personally, I wanted her to have more of a kick in combat as well. There are a lot of good suggestions in this thread for people who feel the same way as I did.
In my case, the party later found a minor artifact called the Pearl of True Light that allowed any character who held it to turn undead as if they were a paladin. Since my rogue had a high charisma, she was the keeper of the Pearl, and used it well and often.

helping the party is nice and all but this is the real way for a solo rogue to fight undead.
1> run away from undead.
2> steal stuff and make money.
3> hire fighter types with your money to do your work for you.
or for the charismatic rogue
1> run away from undead
2> make sure all your diplomacy synergies have kicked in
2> go to local temple of good of good or the sun or undead-killing. use your +20 diplomacy to convince a cleric to do your work for you.
