    You're in luck. There's a PHP rip of this bulliten board system (UBB) called vBulletin, it runs on PHP and a MySQL database. You can grab it off of http://www.vbulletin.com (and, FYI, I don't work for them )

    I may not be of much help here, as I just installed PHP4 yesterday and am just learning my way around, but I have found a bunch of sites that have script repositories.
    http://px.sklar.com/section.html?section_id=5 has a bunch of BBS scripts, some requiring a database back-end (this link takes you right to the BBS scripts).

    I played with this one that is listed halfway down on the page:

    PHP Only Message Board by Ian Hickman

    It worked ok, but had a few problems, such as replying to a reply and all. It would put the posts out of order.

    I hope this helps!
