    you will need to ensure that you have php and mysql and apache installed.

    If this is all done, download the phpBB tarball, and extract it to a web accessible folder.

    Then hit it's installer using a web browser eg.

    Code:
    http://localhost/phpBB/install.php
    obviously changing localhost for the system it's on and phpBB to the path from the main webroot.
