Default Need website help (want to install a message baord)

I'm currently using guild builder, and while osme of the features of their script are nice, the message board blows (www.niasaenvalrim.com for the example).

Over the past week, I've narrowed it down to either VBulletin or DiscusBoards (very similiar).

Part of the guild-builder package is also site hosting, and Ido have the ability to use PHP and MySQL. Ihave an FTP account if that helps, and the server hosts run on UNIX.

Problem is, I'm not to literate in these areas. Any help in setting up, or at least explaining how to set up, would be appreciated.

Default I would suggest...

I would suggest PHP BB, I don't have the link handy, but it's a PHP message board very similar to Vbulletin, only free!

Thanks for the help. I did a search on that, it's www.phpbb.com. I downloaded the script and am actually uploading to my server now.

I'm not certain how it compares to VBulletin overall. I've used VB (as a suer, not an admin) for about2 years and some odd months (www.consolecity.com). So once I get compfortable with PHPBB, I can spot the differences. Cosmetically, they look the same.

Even if it lacks in comparison to VB, it's still free, and much better than the script guild-builder gave me. So I'll likely use it till I see a reason to get DiscusBoards or VB, and have the cash to do so.
