Where to get a Forum/BBS that's open source?

I'm trying to incoporate a BBS into our portal (IBuySpy - heavily modified). I downloaded the ASPNetForums BBS, however, it appears that all the logic/backend stuff is compiled into a .dll where I can't make any modifications. 

Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can get a BBS that utilizes SQL 2000/Stored Procs and is a .NET Solution where the logic is open and able to be changed?

Yeah, after doing some additional reading I'm figuring that out. It's just a bit weird they way they have seperated out the business logic and database logic out from the presentation layer through user of a composite control. 

Not sure I like that paradigm as it seems a bit more complex of a solution.....perhaps it's being complex just for the sake of being complex because someone can, I dunno.
In any case I guess I'll have to go ahead and pick up C# finally as the source code's all written in that language. No big deal I suppose, just a bit different syntax to learn.

phpBB has a simple, user-friendly interface, a helpful FAQ and a generous administrator control panel.
You can choose the databases server (MySQL, MS-SQL, PostgreSQL or Access/ODBC), the functionalities (at first I was a little discouraged by the mods installation process but I found great support on the online community and the documentation they provide answered all my questions) the skins... Everything is customizable so you can create the forum you wish.

If you haven't got much time, and want to see what the new phpbb3 can offer, just try it out on this host : free forums

Hope this can help!

Mozilla get's no style tag's from .net server.
I made a webform in web matrix, and it looks fine in IE. If I open the same link whit Mozilla, it looks like a disaster. When I look at the HTML source, there are no style tags as in IE. But when I save the HTML source from IE (the one whit style tags) and open it in Mozilla, it looks perfect. So the onley reason the webform looks wrong in Mozilla, is because the .net server detects Mozilla and not IE and sends a style less HTML source. Wy? Mozilla does support style tags. Is there a solution for this bug? Or is this a uh.. feature? ..Mivz Update, I have got some more info. It is ...
