I'm going to start making a message board in PHP and MySQL, but I'm not sure exactly how I would go about storing the messages and such. If anyone could give me an idea of how to store the messages, and reference them by like a message id or something that would be great.

are you gonna write it yourself?
just that you know: there are a lot of customizable free messageboards available out there!

to store the messages, you should use a database if you have access to one.
identify every posting with id, poster, topic, section, ....

I wrote a message board in about 4 hours at http://www.coffman.umn.edu/earth/discussion.php which is extremely basic, and not coded very portably at all (design is hard-coded), but it might help with concepts. I can send you the source code if you like.
