Well, I'm trying to build one, so I suppose I need to know how to do both. I'm findind that the installation isn't exactly user friendly so I am even stuggling with the manual PHP provides.

Are installing on Windows IIS or Unix Apache?

Try http://foxserv.net. it's a package that easily installed apache, ,mysql and php in linux or windows machines.

I want a text box where you can submit text, and have that posted on a board - something simple.

Before doing anything with php and mysql you should get a webserver up and running on your computer.
