Hi, I noticed that not only I get confused with installation steps and version of SharePoint forum.
So please, explain the installation proccess a bit clearly than It is written in documentation.
May be the document is written for exactly OS based on Windows Server ?
Any way please explain how to succeed in this task for example on Windows XP, with virtual IIS server.

That would be rather difficult since SharePoint can't be installed on Windows XP.

poor,...So to be able test it locally on desktop PC i must install one of server edition of windows OS? Really no way to test it on virtual IIS on XP ?
I think there should be a way to do so. Just one of difficulties is the complicated documentation.

I'm confused about your posts. You want clear installation instructions? Okay,

1. Download
2. Run MSI package

The fact that the forums is a SharePoint server add-on and cannot be run on the client isn't anything I can do to fix. It's the way it works.
