Creating a message board with PHP/MySQL - Adobe Dreamweaver & Contribute

I want to create a message board with PHP/MySQL, something like this board. How many tables should I create in MySQL database? How should I store the topics and the messages so that when I click on the topic it shows all the related messages? I know I can download a ready-to-use message board but I want to do it myself. Please advise....

    This is quite a complex job to create yourself.

    I would take a look at [url]http://www.phpbb.com/[/url] . Its a pre written solution
    thats very install to install, and is very powerful. Its also customisable,
    so you can reskin it for your own site. Would save you a huge amount of time
    and effort over developing your own.

    I`ve got a quite to installing phpBB at:

    [url]http://www.dreamweavermxsupport.com/index.php?type=article&pid=119&sid=120&id=95[/url]

    Obviously its up to you what you choose to do, but I would really go with
    phpBB and save yourself a hell of a lot of work! Its something I use myself
    on several sites and its never let me down.
