Ikonboard has a very nice interface and I know that its very popular but, as
you thought, it is CGI based.
I've never managed to get it working - maybe because I couldnt get Active
Perl working properly (well, it was a 25MHz 486 with 8Mb RAM!!).
If you're more into PHP I'd go with phpbb as you'd find it easier to tinker
around with to get it looking how you wanted.
