How to Add a Discussion Forum?

I'd like to add a discussion forum to an intranet CD site, similar to this discussion forum.  Any suggestions on how to accomplish this?  Any links to previous discussions on this subject?  Thanks!

Giles, my site features a discussion forum that was originally written by John Conners (there's a link to his site at the bottom of this page):

http://www.astrocyte-design.com/forum/discuss.php

He kindly sent me the code, and allowed me to use it for free.  The forum software requires MySQL and PHP on the web server.

I've got the discussion forum code available for download from my site and you can find it here:

I must stress that I didn't write it from scratch but was inspired by (i.e. heavily borrowed from) Rik's discussion forum that he kindly gave me a copy of, which is here:

Thanks!

Any pointers to a "how-to" to do a .asp forum like Joel's?  Thanks in advance.
