there's a README file in the root folder, that's got pretty simple step by step instructions. I'm gonna hazard a guess and say if it says "page not found" that it's, well, not there. Check your typing on the URL and make sure you uploaded the file, when you make sure it's there, make note of where it is so you're sure to call the right address =)

to chage permissions on a fle it depends on how you are looking at the files on the server, I'm going to assume it's via a GUI based ftp client like Cute, WS or Smart. If that's the case, right click the file and look for a CHMOD option, CHMOD the file to whatever's recommended 755, 777 etc.

JKMabry: It would depend on the host but some of the free PHP/MySQL hosts (like Portland) don't allow any discussion boards.

bareass: Is that right are you looking for a free hosting service? If not then give runningwolf a try.
