I recently got my own server and all and it included that exact forum, but after playing with the code..i couldnt add html formating even (in the file wwwbbs) when addeing that /n; crap. The entire thing is from 1995! Did they even have html formating back then? IoI but seriously...I need to add the following code so that no matter what page pops up the background is black and the text is grey and the links are lime....and add css scripts...can anyone help me out on this one?

>I do have a web server that allows me to use cgi's and perl. Can anyone direct me to some sort of message board program with clear instructions for a newbie like myself?(I am familiar with basic ftp'ing but I'm still lost when it comes to telnet, setting permissions, etc.)
