How would phpBB2 handle a load like forums.linkinpark.com ? They're on vB right now and mySQL times out a lot...

phpBB2 has never been tested under that load but I would guess it would fare just as well as vB. The problem isn't the scripting, its MySQL. I've seen vB boards with ALOT more concurrent users then that one

What do you mean "that load"? How about Flashkit? Over 230 000 members and about 900 000 posts. I guess it's up to the sql, not the board, but how many people say "They have really speedy sql on stable servers" instead of "Wow, this board rocks!!!".
Anyway, I believe phpBB can handle such load too:)!

How much load can the mySQL take?

if you have a BIG board then you could probably afford to have a different back-end than mySQL. since phpBB2 has the database abstraction layer it should do even better on DB2, Oracle, etc.
