I want to make a forum similar to this, but don't know how.

Any suggestions? Where would I go for hosting? How much would it cost? (Links, howto's, RTFM's all appreciated).

(This would be low traffic-maybe 40 people in a specialty discussion group).

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Well, you can learn more about phpBB at www.phpbb.com. You'll need hosting that allows PHP, as well as use of some kind of database (MySQL seems to be common). I've actually found hosting services that offer both for less than $5/month; indeed, what you're doing seems to be the same kind of thing I did about a month ago. A good place with links to a whole bunch of hosting solutions is http://www.ispcheck.com.

Good luck.
