search the web for sites that talk about how to make web pages... In terms of message boards, you can set up an ezboard simply but building your own usually takes having your own domain w/ CGI & FTP.

cgi is programming language... look at the URL for this site, the extension is CGI... FTP is how you transfer files to your website. There's a lot of stuff to learn, use the internet to look up common terms.
