Smile Best free BB software for commercial purposes

Hello folks,
I work for a large corporation, while myself I am a big fan of open-source (hope that doesnt sound contradictory ).

I will be setting up a general bulletin board for us here (for around a thousand odd users), and I want to ask ye-all-knowledgeable-folks for your recommendation on some bulletin board software which ... (in order of importance) -

1) Is FREE for commercial use.

2) Can use LDAP for authentication.

3) Easily configurable for people who aren't PERL/PHP gurus (like me )

I will probably use RHEL 3 as base, but that shouldn't affect your judgement (of course it should run on ).
