    so i would like to start up a website...actually just message board and maybe a couple pages of product reviews, but i have never really messed with web design.

    Are the any good tutotials for a novice? Basiclly, one that starts with registering a domain name and proceeds to buy webspace, then setting up a vBulletin board or something?

    I can manage registering a domain name but after that I'm not really sure what I need to do.

    Buy hosting, go cheap, since your board won't be huge overnight.
    DNS to new host.
    Install phpBB or punBB for starters (free)
    If it succeeds, buy VB license.

    Is it easy to transfer from phpbb to vb without losing your posts? Never tried that before...

    Yes, it's pretty easy. vB has import tools.
