Install something like phpbb. It requires no knowledge of PHP as just about everything you need is already there, setup, etc. It does help tremendously to know a little about it, to edit, tweak, etc, to your liking though but by actually installing it, will help you learn it faster.

And I only recommend this type of forum since the one this board uses costs money, phpbb is free and works on just about anything, even windows.
