After having my phpbb2 board crash on me twice, i moved to another 
software choice.  I use invision board (http://www.invisionpower.com). 
While this software is not free, it is open source, and you get great 
tech support.
40,000 members and 600,000 posts strong on this board.
phpbb crashed on me and corrupted my db withonly 5k members and 30k posts...

something to keep in mind.  I'm sure there's been bug fixes since i last 
used it, but IMO, invision is the best-written php BBS out there right 
now.  100% OOP, full template system w/ xml import, tons of mods at 
invisionize.com etc, etc
