abstract,

There's lots of well-written, easy to understand material on the site already, that describes in plain language and in detail how to install phpBB ... jus take your time, it's going to be a lot to learn, but it's really not that difficult.

Another good resource is the set of flash tutorials here:
http://www.phpbb.com/support/tutorials/

Good luck,

David

Oh...well, then.
http://www.pirateslounge.com/forum/install/install.php

Ok...wait...

whatever site your being hosted by, that's what your site adress is.

For example:

http://www.free-webspace.com/forum/install/install.php

Don't use the domain name you have(http://www.pirateslounge.com), it won't work.
