If you are just starting into PHP, try some something more basic. If you have some background into another language such as PERL, then you shouldn't have too much trouble. However, if you insist to taking on a bulletin board script for analyzing purposes, head over to hotscripts.com where I'm sure there is a few tutorials and many boards from the simplistic recursive wwwthreads style boards to the vertical setup like infopop and UBB.
I've coded up BlazeBoard script last year and I must say, that majority of the work is getting the cool features rather than developing a foundation of the board. All a board does is input/output data from the database. So first step to take would be developing a core registration module, then utilizing it, authenticate the user so they can post to a forum, then build the module to retrieve the data. Of course there are other factors to consider on the complexity of the board, that is if you want to consider the ability to create more than one board for a forum or be able to categorize it. These are really features, and doesn't represent the core system of any board.
