Thanks for the input, after playing around the choicesI think I
might go for SMF.
Looks pretty cool software, So far I have checked Phorum, phpBB and SMF
only.

The only negative thing I can tell so far is there is no gettext
infrastructure on SMF or phorum...but atleast there is a means to
translate the sofware :-)

 I know this phpBB, but what are other options?I have never played
 with a forum before.
 

 I can strongly recommend Phorum (http://www.phorum.org/).

 I need some advice in picking a PHP forum for a group of people, I
know
 there are couple of them but could somebody from here give advice on
 which one to choose.

Your request is a bit open ended. Are you looking for blogs, wiki,
message based, or what?

A couple of years ago we set up Dokuwiki as a grass roots effort in the
development group. In just over a year we had 1100 pages created. It was
so popular that management got into the act and decided to replace it
with an officially supported Confluence server. Very few of us
considered that an upgrade, but that's what happens when the PHB's get
involved.

I maintained the Dokuwiki server on a Red Hat system. It took about 30
minutes a week to keep up. It's all PHP, with numerous add-on features
and capabilities.

Sorry if I wasnt clear enough, but I was looking for forum or may be the
way you called it message board for people to discuss topics.
Mostly its going to be a political Forum where people discuss major
political topics/news about their country.

So basically my search ended up with SMF as a software to do the job.

I really appreciate the input

Cheers.

Have a look at the assortment of forums (fora?) at
http://php.opensourcecms.com/scripts/show.php?catid=5cat=Forums

They have sandbox sites that you can play with and get a feel for the
application.
