    What one do you want to use - aand also does your site have PHP and Mysql ???

    Any of them out there I would suggest PHPbb ... It's free - if you plan on using Vbulletin you will have to pay 180.00 and 30.00 a year for it ..

    Since you have PHP/MySQL support on your server, I think you should give InvisionBoard a try ... it's a full-featured message board, and it's free too. :)

    Invision or PHPBB will do the trick for you. ;)

    Ikonboard is another free one - It uses CGi instead of php .. It crashes alot though ,, They have a PHP version coming out, I'm not sure if it is or not, I have'nt looked into it for a while ..

    I have had bad experiences with phpBB, plus it can be slow, invision is faster, and to my experience more responsive. Plus xsivforce can make killer skins for it.
