    i'm trying to set-up a forum on a website i'm building using v.bulletin. i haven't bought my registerd cop yet but i was loaned one from a friend to play with before i got my oen licenced/registered copy. (don't want to waste my cash on somehting i can;t figure out)

    anyways, what the hell do i do? i've never used anything other than html before.. do i just upload all the php files and start from there?

    Upload the files and run the /admin/install.php file. It will take you through step by step.
