That is all relative to what you want to store in it, from a data perspective.

First, some design theory, relational database forms:

I have experience with all these forms and I suggest you to take anything but Boyce-Codd with a grain of salt, and only really learn that form.

Then SQL:

the PHPBB installer should be really easy.

You should simply unzip a package, upload some file (or extract them to the correct directory).

Run some installer, give it a database name, username and password.

Answer some questions, and it will setup the DB. I assume.

That's just what it does, you never need to create any database yourself. I outlined what I did to set up my forum in one of my posts in the other topic.
