Hi Andy,

I don't have much experience with installing and running different 
message boards, but I have installed MercuryBoard ( 
http://www.mercuryboard.com/ ) and found it to be straightforward and 
fairly easy to set up.

A great resource for trying out different open source software packages 
is http://www.opensourcecms.com/ , which lets you try out a variety of 
programs, including playing with their configuration, on their servers.  
They re-install the default program every two hours.  Message board 
programs are listed under "Forums" in the menu.

Hope this helps!
